Evaluate an improper integral involving log [duplicate]

Studying for complex analysis, I stumbled upon this problem. Evaluate $$\int_{0}^{\infty} \frac{\log(1+x^2)}{1+x^2}~dx.$$ So the integrand suggests that I need to use the function $f(z)=\frac{\log 1+z^...

Integrate $ \int_0^\infty \frac{ \ln^2(1+x)}{x^{3/2}} dx=8\pi \ln 2$

I am trying to evaluate this integral. $$ I=\int_0^\infty \frac{ \ln^2(1+x)}{x^{3/2}} dx=8\pi \ln 2 $$ Note $$ \ln(1+x)=\sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{(-1)^{n+1}x^n}{n}, \ |x| < 1. $$ I was trying to do ...

Integral:$ \int^\infty_{-\infty}\frac{\ln(x^{2}+1)}{x^{2}+1}dx $

How to evaluate: $$ \int^\infty_{-\infty}\frac{\ln(x^{2}+1)}{x^{2}+1}dx $$ Maybe we can evaluate it using the well-known result:$\int_{0}^{\frac{\pi}{2}} \ln{\sin t} \text{d}t=\int_{0}^{\frac{\pi}{2}...

Can $ \int_0^{\pi/2} \ln ( \sin(x)) \; dx$ be evaluated with “complex method”?

Can the following integral be evaluated using complex method by substituting $\sin(x) = {e^{ix}-e^{-ix} \over 2i}$? $$ I=\int_0^{\pi/2} \ln ( \sin(x)) \; dx = - {\pi \ln(2) \over 2}$$
