Four Ways to Skin a Definite Integral
Dence, Thomas; Dence, Joseph
College Mathematics Journal, v41 n2 p134-144 Mar 2010
The integral of 1/(1 + x[superscript 2]) is standard in elementary calculus, but the related integral 1/(1 + x[superscript 4]) rarely appears. In this article we examine the latter integral, computing its value by four different methods; several that involve standard elementary calculus techniques, and several involving complex integration.
