(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find

[tex]\int \frac{1}{lnx} dx[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

Let [itex]t=lnx \Rightarrow \frac{dt}{dx}=\frac{1}{x} \Rightarrow dx=e^t dt[/itex]

[tex]\int \frac{1}{lnx} dx \equiv \int \frac{e^t}{t} dt[/tex]

and well

[tex]e^t= \sum _{n=o} ^{\infty} \frac{t^n}{n!}[/tex]

[tex]\frac{e^t}{t}=\sum _{n=o} ^{\infty} \frac{t^{n-1}}{n!}[/tex]

[tex]\int \frac{e^t}{t}=\int \sum _{n=o} ^{\infty} \frac{t^{n-1}}{n!}[/tex]

[tex]=\sum _{n=o} ^{\infty} \frac{t^{n}}{(n+1)!}[/tex]

Is there any easier closed form solution for this?
