Scalar density integral

  1. Sep 27, 2015 #1

    i need to solve this integral:

    [itex]\rho_s=\int (m/\omega)e^{-\omega/T}d{\vec k}[/itex]
    where [itex]\omega=\sqrt{m^2+{\vec k}}[/itex] is the dispersion relation, T is the temperature of the system and m the mass of a particle

    Thank you!

    How do you add a scalar to a vector?

    If k would be a scalar, the derivative of ##e^{-\omega / T}## looks promising.

    Sorry! I was wrong!

    [itex] \omega = \sqrt{m^2 + \vec{k}^2} [/itex]

    However, i still can't solve it.

    Did you try spherical coordinates?
