Integration Techniques

Writing an integral down is only the first step. A toolkit of techniques can help find its value, from substitutions to trigonometry to partial fractions to differentiation.

Level 4


\[\large \int_{\frac{1}{8}}^{\frac{1}{2}} \left \lfloor \ln \left \lceil \dfrac{1}{x} \right \rceil \right \rfloor dx = \, ?\]

\[\] Notations: \( \lfloor \cdot \rfloor \) denotes the floor function and \( \lceil \cdot \rceil \) denotes the ceiling function.

\[\large \int_0^\infty \frac {\ln\big(1+x^2\big)}{1+x^2}\, dx \]

Find the value of the closed form of the above integral.
Give your answer to 3 decimal places.

Bonus: Try to solve this problem without using contour integration.

\[\large \displaystyle \int_0^\pi \dfrac{x\sin 2x \sin\left(\frac \pi 2 \cos x\right)}{2x-\pi} \, dx\]

The above integral can be expressed as \(\dfrac{A}{B\pi^C}\) where \(A\), \(B\) and \(C\) are positive integers with \(A\), \(B\) coprime. Find \(A+B+C\)

\[ \large A = \displaystyle\int_{1}^{\infty} \left(\dfrac{1}{u^2} - \dfrac{1}{u^4}\right) \dfrac{du}{\ln u} \]

Find the value of \(e^A\).

\[ \displaystyle \int_{1}^{\infty} \dfrac {2x\{x\} - \{x\}^2} {x^2 \lfloor x \rfloor ^2} \, dx \]

If the integral above can be expressed as \( \dfrac{\pi^a - b} c \), where \(a,b,c\) are all positive integers, find \(a+b+c\).
