I understand that
where do you get [tex] (a)^{{N1}\over{N}} [/tex] from?

I am sorry. I have little bit of typo in the answer.
It should be like this: [tex] \Rightarrow b_k=\frac{1}{(a)^{\frac{N1}{N}}\prod _{\underset{j\neq k}{j=0}}^{N1} \left(e^{\frac{2k \pi }{N}i}e^{\frac{2j \pi }{N}i}\right)} [/tex] You don't understand why there is a factor of [tex](a)^{\frac{N1}{N}}[/tex]. Actually it is just property of the product notation. The step you missed is this one: [tex] \prod _{\underset{j\neq k}{j=0}}^{N1} \left(\sqrt[N]{A}e^{\frac{\theta }{N}i}\left(e^{\frac{2 n \pi }{N}i}e^{\frac{2j \pi }{N}i}\right)\right) [/tex] [tex] \Rightarrow \left(\sqrt[N]{A}e^{\frac{\theta }{N}i}\right)^{N1}\prod _{\underset{j\neq k}{j=0}}^{N1} \left(e^{\frac{2 n \pi }{N}i}e^{\frac{2j \pi }{N}i}\right) [/tex] When you take out a factor in the product sign, you are not just taking 1 factor out. Since in the product, there are N1 factors, so you are take N1 factors out instead. Hope you can understand.

Hello !
in order to find a primitive of 1/((x^N)+1), let t=x^N and z = y/x where z(x) is the new function to find. This leads to z as an Euler's hypergeometric integral with variable t. Finally, back to y and x, we obtain the solution : y = x*F(a,b;c;X) + constant where F is the Gauss hypergeometric function (usually noted 2F1 in the hypergeometric functions classification) a = 1 b = 1/N c =1+(1/N) X = x^N Using the general series definition of the hypergeometric function, it is easy to express y(x) in terms of a rather simple infinite series.

I would approach it entirely from the perspective of complex analysis:
[tex] \begin{aligned} \int_C \frac{dz}{z^N1}&=\sum_{j=0}^{N1}\int_C \frac{a_j}{zz_j}dz\\ &=\sum_{j=0}^{N1} a_j\log(zz_j)\biggr_{c_a}^{c_b} \\ &=\sum_{j=0}^{N1} a_j\big(\log(c_bz_j)\log(c_az_j)\big)\\ \end{aligned} [/tex] and then ask how must the multivalued antiderivative be interpreted so that only the endpoints of the contour [itex] (c_a, c_b)[/itex], can be used in the expression above for all reasonable contours even ones which loop around multiple times. :) Also, if it were mine, I'd check it with something real: [tex]y'=\frac{1}{x^4+1},\quad y(0)=y_0[/tex] Now, how does the numeric solution to that compare with all those multivalued logarithms or hypergeometric expressions? For me, that comparison is a crucial part of doing mathematics.

Is [tex] a_j = \frac{z_j}{N} [/tex] ?
Is it supposed to be obvious?

[tex] \frac{1}{3 (z1)}\frac{(1)^{1/3}}{3 \left(z+(1)^{1/3}\right)}+\frac{(1)^{2/3}}{3 \left(z(1)^{2/3}\right)} = \frac{1}{z^31}[/tex] and [tex]\frac{1}{4(z+1)}+\frac{1}{4(z1)}\frac{i}{4(z+i)}+\frac{i}{4(zi)}=\frac{1}{z^41}[/tex]

Hello !
First, simplify it, since parameters are particular (a=1, c=1+b). It reduces into particular hypergeometric functions of lower level : Beta incomplete (in the complex range) or Lerch function. The series developement of the Lerch function directly leads to very simple series. (i.e. : joint page) Of course, everybody is aware that these series can be obtained on a very simple way by developing in series 1/(1+x^N) or (x^N)/(1+x^N) before integration. But if the finite series contains functions like log, or polylog, or etc., each of these functions is an infinite series, so, the computation would be a finite sum of infinite series. Why only one special function like hypergeometric (or better, the Lerch function in the present case) be less desirable ? Well, this is my viewpoint. But I understand that many people prefer using more common functions than only one special function.

Hello Gregg and Jackmell
In order to remain in the real range, it's better to start with a similar series, but with a quadric at denominator. The integation isn't too difficult and leads to a general term including real logarithm and arctangent. (i.e.: attachement)
