Mathematica v9.0.1 states that this integral does not converge.

The problem is to evaluate the following integral: $$\int_0^{\infty} dx \frac{\log(1+x)}{\left(1+x^2\right)\,\left(1+x^3\right)}$$ This one turned out to be messy but straightforward. What did surprise is the way in which I would need to employ the residue theorem. Clearly, the integral is more amenable to real methods than a contour integration. What happens, though, is that the […]
