(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

[tex]\int_0^\infty\frac{x^{p-1}}{1+ x}dx[/tex]

** I could not get p-1 to show as the exponent; the problem is x raised to the power of

p-1.

[tex]\int_0^\infty\frac{ln(x) dx}{(x^2+1)^2}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

There is no attempt, but I would like to make one! I'm asking for guidance. I've been given these integrals from my engineering professor and was told to solve them over the winter break. That by researching these integrals, I can begin to prepare myself for complex analysis next semester. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how to approach them. What complex analysis technique is used to solve these? I'd really like to read up on it as well as everything I need to know to understand the technique.. Thanks !!
