Does this Integral have an Elementary Solution

  1. May 9, 2006 #1
    I cannot seem to get anywhere with this integral I was wondering if anyone could provide insite into a special function or some technique I overlooked (only tried integration by parts and it got me nowhere).

    Also, forgive me for not knowing how to format it so that it appears pretty,


    g, j and k are constants.
