Hello
I am studying Landau Mechanics (3rd ed.)

§15. Kepler's problem
page 36

M(angular momentum), m(mass), E(mechanical energy), and α are constant.

How to integrate it?
Please help me...

If you’re just trying to verify that’s it’s true then differentiate the integrated side to prove to yourself.

To integrate it though, I would use integral tables and look up a similar one. There is no shame in using this approach as there are many integrals that vex even the best folks.

A cheap book with integral tables is Schaums outlines on Math Tables and Formulas. It’s available on Amazon and is a great reference to keep around.
