Could you please solve that integral step by step integral from 0 to 1 : ln(x^2+1)/(x+1) Also, I attached as a photo..

I ran your problem through wolfram just to see if its easily solvable. WolframAlpha: Computational Knowledge Engine It doesn't look simple, you may want to make sure you have it written correctly.

Yes, it is not simple.. And it has boundaries.. It has special solution, and that is what I want  if you are able to solve.  It should has something like that . Actually this question asked by our professor in college as a hard question, but he said that it has a trick, and solvable by some of the series.. You have to do a lot of times IBT(Integration By Part), and cut at somewhere, and find something with Series.. Answer is π^2/48 + (3 log^2(2))/4 according to WolframAlpha: WolframAlpha: Computational Knowledge Engine) . After first IBT I got at the integral side : integral 2x[ln(x+1)/(x^2+1)]dx. From 0 to 1 integral of ln(x+1)/(x^2+1) equals (ln(2)π)/8 but, because of I'm not an advance about IBT for definite integrals, I could not walk anymore.. Thanks in advance for your helps Misty

Yes, it is hard!! There should be some tricks to solve it, and it has boundaries.. Thanks..

Any idea?

Do you still need this? I attempted a solution on paper, but stopped just before plugging in my bounds. It may take me a bit to type the solution up. Just let me know. Thanks.

I am interested in seeing a solution.

Try something like the following: $\displaystyle \int_0^1\frac{\ln(x^2 + 1)}{x + 1}dx = \int_0^1\frac{\ln(x  i)}{x + 1}dx + \int_0^1\frac{\ln(x + i)}{x + 1}dx$ then finding those two integrals by writing the integrand as a series (possibly after making a substitution) and integrating that term by term.
