That looks like a pretty standard kind of complex analysis problem. Set up a contour integral in which the contour goes from 0 to R along the positive real axis, along a quarter circle with center at 0 and radius R from R to Ri, then from Ri to 0 along the positive complex axis. Along the real axis, taking z= x, it is the desired [tex]\int_0^R \frac{1}{(x^3+ 1)}dx. Along the complex axis, taking z= xi, it is . The integral along the quarter circle is harder to set up but clearly goes to 0 as R goes to 0. The function is analytic inside the contour so the entire integral, the sum of those three, is 0.
