I would like to know the value of the following integral: $$ f(\alpha,\beta,\gamma)=\int_{0}^{1}\int_{0}^{1}\ln{(t+i\alpha t')}~e^{i(\beta t+\gamma t')}\,\mathrm{d}t\,\mathrm{d}t' $$ where $\alpha$, $\beta$ and $\gamma$ are real-valued constants. The integral arises when considering surface currents on electrical conductors. Mathematica will calculate the integral analytically for individual integer values of the constants, in terms of the exponential integral, so I know an expression should be possible, but I'm not sure how to do this more generally. It is possible that the method in How to double integrate the product of a logarithm and an exponential may be helpful, but I don't see how to modify it to cover the difference in the argument of the logarithm here.

Thanks in advance for any help.
