I'm trying to sort out the integral:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\int x^{-2}e^{ikx}dx[/tex].

At first, I thought I would have to solve it numerically. But I am hoping to exploit the orthogonality of the plane waves:

[tex]\int e^{ikx}dx = 2\pi\delta(k)[/tex]

It has been a while since I have dealt with integral manipulation, so any help would be appreciated.
