# Solving the integral of a Modified Bessel function of the second kind

I would like to find the answer for the following integral

$$\int x\ln(x)K_0(x) dx$$

where $K_0(x)$ is the modified Bessel function of the second kind and $\ln(x)$ is the natural-log. Do you have any ideas how to find?

I edited your post. Is this the integral you meant? – Mhenni Benghorbal Dec 19 '12 at 17:25
yes. thank you for your effort. – user53719 Dec 19 '12 at 17:34
@user53719: You are welcome. – Mhenni Benghorbal Dec 19 '12 at 17:38

Use integration by parts and the fact that $\int x K_0(x)dx = -x \frac{d}{dx}K_0(x)=-xK'_0(x)$

$$\int x\ln(x)K_0(x)\,dx = -x\ln(x)K'_0(x) - \int (-x K'_0(x))(\frac{1}{x}) \, dx =\dots.$$

Here's what Mathematica found:

Looks like an integration by parts to me (combined with an identity for modified Bessel functions).
