The art of using the Residue Theorem in evaluating definite integrals

As many of you know, using the Residue Theorem to evaluate a definite integral involves not only choosing a contour over which to integrate a function, but also choosing a function as the integrand. Many times, this is an easy task when integrating, say, rational functions over the real line. Sometimes there are less trivial […]
