I saw these definite integrals in a standard mathematical table, can someone provide proofs to these so that we can all learn the interesting methods to solving these integrals?

$\Large{\int_{0}^{1}{ (\log { \dfrac{1}{x} })^n }\, dx = n! \quad\quad n > -1 }$

$\Large{\int_{0}^{\infty}{\dfrac{1}{x}(\dfrac{1}{1+x^k}-e^{-x})}\, dx = \gamma \quad\quad k>0 }$

$\Large{\int_{0}^{\frac{\pi}{2}}{\sqrt{\cos{x} } } \, dx = \dfrac{(2\pi)^\frac{3}{2} }{ (\Gamma(\frac{1}{4} ) )^2 } }$

$\Large{\int_{0}^{1}{ \ln { \Gamma(q)} }\, dq =\ln{ \sqrt{2\pi}}}$

$\Large{\int_{0}^{\infty}{\dfrac{ \operatorname{W}(x)}{x\sqrt{x}} }\, dx =2\sqrt{2\pi}}$

$\large{\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}\frac{e^{i nx}}{\Gamma(\alpha+x) \Gamma(\beta -x)}dx = \frac{ \left(2\cos \frac{n}{2} \right)^{\alpha +\beta-2}}{\Gamma(\alpha+\beta-1)}e^{\frac{in}{2}(\beta - \alpha)} \quad |n|<\pi \quad \text{and} \quad \Re(\alpha+\beta)>1}$

For clarity:

$\large{ \Gamma(x)}$ =The Gamma Function

$\large{ \ln { \Gamma(x)}}$=The Log-Gamma Function

$\large{\gamma}$ =The Euler-Mascheroni Constant

$\large{\operatorname{W}(x)}$ = Lambert W-Function

$\large{e^x}$ = Natural Exponential Function

$\large{\pi}$ = Pi

**Thank you to everyone who helps!**

TopNewest@Calvin Lin How can I center the links with the functions and constants? It always starts a new paragraph and I believe thats because I closed the LaTeX boundaries, but I did that so I could add a link :S

We currently do not allow for linking within Latex.

I've edited the first line accordingly, where it is not centered (and I don't see a strong reason for doing so).

Thanks! Got it organized now :)
