Homework Help: Difficult Integral

  1. Dec 18, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I'm stuck with this definite integral : [tex]\int_0^1\frac{ln(1+x)}{1+x^{2}} dx[/tex]

    2. Relevant equations

    The various "standard integrals".

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I just don't know where to start, or how to do it. I tried various substitutions but none of them worked; I also tired doing it by parts but that didn't work either.

    Okay, I got that. Thanks.
    I knew of the identity, but didn't know I'd have to use it after making a substitution.
