# Use the principal branch of log z $\int_{-1}^{1} log z\, dz$

Use the principal branch of log z $\int_{-1}^{1} log z\, dz$

My attempt was we see how -1 to 1 became pi to 0? That should make the e^whatever terms go away. Then we can do it by parts. $\int_{-1}^{1} log z\, dz$ =$\int_{\pi}^{0} log (e^{i\theta})ie^{i\theta}\, dz=-2+i\pi$

Is this correct result? Could please show me another method of resolution?

Could someone help me through this problem?

I would say $$\int_{-1}^1 \log(z)\,dz = \int_0^1\log(x)\,dx+\int_{-1}^0[\log(-x)+i\pi]\,dx$$ and then do some real integrals.
