Homework Help: Infinite Integral

  1. Oct 9, 2008 #1
    Hey folks, can anyone give me some pointers with the following:

    [tex]-\frac{1}{2}\sum_{m,n}\frac{\partial}{\partial s}|_{s=0}\int\frac{d^4k}{(2\pi)^4}(k^2+M^2_{m,n})^{-s}[/tex]

    [tex]=-\frac{1}{32\pi^2}\frac{\partial}{\partial s}|_{s=-2}\frac{1}{s(s+1)}\sum_{m,n}(M_{m,n}^2)^{-s}[/tex]

    Any hints here would be great, my Schaums isn't coming in too useful here.

    Thanks!

    What is it that you're trying to show? Equality? At the moment this doesn't mean anything - you need to properly define the problem. Until then it's impossible to help you.

    Well, I'm trying to understand how the k integral was done.

    If its any help its from equation 1 of http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-ph/0301168
