    How can I solve this Laplace transform (or how can I find series solution)?

    Is this part of a larger problem? If you are simply looking to evaluate this integral, I'd recommend you use Rayleigh's formula.

    This is jackson classicsal electrodynamics problem 5.34b (third edition). I expand J1(ka) and integrate each term of J1(ka)*J1(ka) but I can't find solution. What must I do if R>2a? (please help).
