Hi there. Evaluating the expression [itex]\int\frac{dx}{\sqrt{x^{2}+y^{2}}}[/itex] I can get to the result [itex]ln(\frac{x+\sqrt{x^{2}+y^{2}}}{d})[/itex], but in my book it goes from this directly to [itex]ln (x+\sqrt{x^{2}+y^{2}})[/itex], a result wolframalpha says is valid for 'restricted [itex]x[/itex] values'. What does it mean? What are those restricted values? Why?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Many thanks.
