Trying to solve this integral

[tex]\int_0^T \frac{dT'}{T'}\frac{d}{dT'}U(T',V)[/tex]

where the temperature dependent part of U is

[tex]\Sigma \frac{h\omega}{\exp(\beta\omega)-1}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

using x = hw/T I find that I need to integrate

[tex]\frac{x^3 \exp(x/k)}{(\exp(x/k)-1)^2 h\omega k}[/tex]

with limits going to 0 -> inf and T -> hw/T

I just don't see how with these limits it will work out nicely (the result is used to get the pressure in the harmonic approximation) but I can't find my mistake.
