Crazy integral

Hello i have problem with integrating function
I tried something like this
And i tried to integrate taylor series but best i can get is sum with exponentional integral in it or gamma function.
Is there another way to do it ?
Thank you

Re: Crazy integral

No, there isn't. Do you understand that very few functions can be integrated as an elementary functions?

Re: Crazy integral

I know there is not any formula for this integral.
But iam asking if there is sum that will not contain exponentional integral or gamma function in it.

Re: Crazy integral

It isn't a "crazy integral", but a "Sophomore's dream" !
To go beyond this jokes, have a look at the paper : "Sophomore's Dream Function" :
