I wanted to express

\(\large{\displaystyle \int_{0}^{1} \frac{dx}{\sqrt{1+x^{4}}}}\) in terms of beta function

I started with \(x=\sqrt{\tan t}\), then got the integral in form of \(sin2t\) and again substituted \(sin2t=z\) , after this i couldn't solve

Now let \(y = 2t \), you get \( \displaystyle \frac1{2\sqrt2} \int_0^{\pi /2} (\sin(y))^{-1/2} \, dy \).

Compare with equation 14 and equation 1 from this page.

And apply Euler Reflection Formula, you should get the answer of \( \frac1{8\sqrt\pi} \left [ \Gamma \left( \frac 14\right)^2 \right ] \). – Pi Han Goh · 1 year, 7 months ago
