The problem is to compute the following integral: $$\int_{1}^1 dx \frac{xy^{\alpha}}{(1x^2)^{(1+\alpha)/2}}$$ I will show how to compute this integral using Cauchy’s theorem. It was remarked that it should not be possible to use Cauchy’s theorem, as Cauchy’s theorem only applies to analytic functions, and an absolute value certainly does not qualify. True. Nevertheless, for the […]
