Is it possible to compute the precise value of this integral? If not, can we at least show whether it converges or diverges? It seems that the integrand is undefined on both limits of integration.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] \int^{∞}_{-∞}\frac{1}{x^{2}}dx [/tex]

Also, does the function being even help us at all?
