# Evaluation of definite integral in terms of Bessel function

Can I express the integral $\int_0^1[\cos (xt)/(1-t^2)]dt$ in terms of Bessel Polynomial? I tried by putting $t=\sin \theta$ and used the integral representation of Bessel's polynomial $J_n(x)=(1/\pi)\int_0^\pi \cos(n\theta-x\sin \theta)d\theta$. I expect the answer may be $J_0(x)(\pi/2)$. But I did not get it even now. Help is solicited.

• Why the original integral should be convergent? The integrand function has a non-integrable singularity in $t=1$. I bet you have forgotten a square root. – Jack D'Aurizio Feb 13 '15 at 17:07

of the form $$x=(2k+1)~\dfrac\pi2$$ , and the result is $$I_{2k+1}=\dfrac\pi4\sqrt{|2k+1|}\cdot J^{(1,0)}\bigg(-\dfrac12~,~|2k+1|\dfrac\pi2\bigg)$$,
for all $$k\in\mathbb Z$$.
• If, however, you meant $\sqrt{1-t^2}$, as @Jack suggested, then the result is $I(x)=\dfrac\pi2~J_0(x)~$ for all $x\in\mathbb R$. – Lucian Feb 13 '15 at 17:50
• ... by just setting $t=\sin \theta$. – Jack D'Aurizio Feb 13 '15 at 18:18
• Yes. It is a an error on my part. It is $\sqrt{1-t^2}$. How can I change the limits from $(0,\pi/2)$ to $(0,\pi)$ – Purushothaman Feb 14 '15 at 1:04
• Hint: $~\sin\bigg(\dfrac\pi2+u\bigg)~=~?$ – Lucian Feb 14 '15 at 5:03
