TopNewestGiven \(\displaystyle \int \left(\tan^{-1}(x)\right)^2dx\)

Now Let \(\tan^{-1}(x) = t\Leftrightarrow x = \tan (t)\Leftrightarrow dx = \sec^2 (t) dt\)

So \(\displaystyle \int t^2 \cdot \sec^2 (t) dt\)

Now Using Integration by parts , we get

\(\displaystyle =t^2 \tan (t)-2 \int t\cdot \tan (t)dt\)

Again using I.B.P, we get

\(\displaystyle = t^2 \cdot \tan (t)-2t\cdot \ln \left|\sec (t)\right|+2\int \ln \left|\sec (t)\right| dt\)

Now I did not understand How can i solve \(\displaystyle \int \ln \left|\sec (t)\right|dt\)

OR may be yours question is like \(\displaystyle \int_{0}^{\frac{\pi}{4}}\left(\tan^{-1}(x)\right)^2dx\)

OR \(\displaystyle \int_{0}^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\left(\tan^{-1}(x)\right)^2dx\) – Jagdish Singh · 3 years, 4 months ago
