This does not have an integral in terms of elementary functions by the theorem of Chebyshev that you have had pointed at in an earlier post.$\displaystyle \int\frac{1}{\sqrt[4]{1-x^4}}dx$

It can also be found >>here<< near expression (20)

A quicker way to Wolfram straight from MHB is using one of our MHB Widgets.This does not have an integral in terms of elementary functions by the theorem of Chebyshev that you have had pointed at in an earlier post.

For your question this will use the same Wolfram indefinite integral calculator. Here's the output of your question.

According to...Notices of the American Math. Soc.

Gauss's Constant -- from Wolfram MathWorld

... the so called 'Gauss's constant' is defined as...

$\displaystyle G= \frac{1}{\text{M}\ (1, \sqrt{2})} = \frac{2}{\pi} \int_{0}^{1} \frac{dx}{\sqrt{1-x^{4}}}$

Kind regards

(Dont no whether it is Right or not)

$\displaystyle \int\frac{1}{\sqrt[4]{1-x^4}}dx$

Put $\displaystyle 1-x^4=t^4x^4\Leftrightarrow x^4 = \frac{1}{1+t^4}$

$\displaystyle4x^3 dx = -\frac{4t^3}{(1+t^4)^2}dt$

$\displaystyle dx = -\frac{t^3}{(1+t^4)^2.x^3}dt$

So Integral Convert into $\displaystyle -\int\frac{t^3}{(1+t^4)^2.x^3.tx}$

$\displaystyle - \int\frac{t^2}{(1+t^4)^2}.\frac{(1+t^4)}{1}dt$

$\displaystyle -\int\frac{t^2}{1+t^4}dt = -\frac{1}{2}\int\frac{(t^2+1)+(t^2-1)}{1+t^4}dt$

Now Let $\displaystyle \mathbb{I = \int \frac{t^2+1}{t^4+1}}$ and $\displaystyle\mathbb{J=\int\frac{t^2-1}{t^4+1}}dt$

after that we can solve for $\mathbb{I}$ and $\mathbb{J}$

Thanks

Very good!... pratically speacking You can directly solve the integral...

(Dont no whether it is Right or not)

$\displaystyle \int\frac{1}{\sqrt[4]{1-x^4}}dx$

Put $\displaystyle 1-x^4=t^4x^4\Leftrightarrow x^4 = \frac{1}{1+t^4}$

$\displaystyle4x^3 dx = -\frac{4t^3}{(1+t^4)^2}dt$

$\displaystyle dx = -\frac{t^3}{(1+t^4)^2.x^3}dt$

So Integral Convert into $\displaystyle -\int\frac{t^3}{(1+t^4)^2.x^3.tx}$

$\displaystyle - \int\frac{t^2}{(1+t^4)^2}.\frac{(1+t^4)}{1}dt$

$\displaystyle -\int\frac{t^2}{1+t^4}dt = -\frac{1}{2}\int\frac{(t^2+1)+(t^2-1)}{1+t^4}dt$

Now Let $\displaystyle \mathbb{I = \int \frac{t^2+1}{t^4+1}}$ and $\displaystyle\mathbb{J=\int\frac{t^2-1}{t^4+1}}dt$

after that we can solve for $\mathbb{I}$ and $\mathbb{J}$

Thanks

$\displaystyle - \int\frac{t^2}{1+t^4}dt = \frac{1}{4\ \sqrt{2}}\ [\ln (t^{2}+ \sqrt{2}\ t +1) - \ln (t^{2} - \sqrt{2}\ t +1) + 2\ \tan^{-1} (1+\sqrt{2}\ t) - 2\ \tan^{-1} (1- \sqrt{2}\ t)] + c$

Indefinite Integral -- from Wolfram MathWorld

$\displaystyle \int x^{u}\ (a + b\ x^{v})^{w}$ (1)

...

In this case is $w=-\frac{1}{4}$, $u=0$ and $v=4$ so that...

$\displaystyle w+\frac{u+1}{v}=0$ (2)

... and, if I remember well, $0 \in \mathbb{Z}$...

Kind regards

You can expand the function under integral sign in partial fractions...To Chisigma

How can I calculate it Directily

$\displaystyle - \int\frac{t^2}{1+t^4}dt = \frac{1}{4\ \sqrt{2}}\ [\ln (t^{2}+ \sqrt{2}\ t +1) - \ln (t^{2} - \sqrt{2}\ t +1) + 2\ \tan^{-1} (1+\sqrt{2}\ t) - 2\ \tan^{-1} (1- \sqrt{2}\ t)] + c$

Thanks

$\displaystyle f(t)=\frac{t^{2}}{1+t^{4}}= \frac{r_{1}}{t-\sqrt{2}\ (1+i)} + \frac{r_{2}}{t-\sqrt{2}\ (1-i)} + \frac{r_{3}}{t+\sqrt{2}\ (1+i)} + \frac{r_{4}}{t+\sqrt{2}\ (1-i)}$ (1)

... where...

$\displaystyle r_{1}= \lim_{t \rightarrow \sqrt{2}\ (1+i)} (t-\sqrt{2}\ (1+i))\ f(t)$

$\displaystyle r_{2}= \lim_{t \rightarrow \sqrt{2}\ (1-i)} (t-\sqrt{2}\ (1-i))\ f(t)$

$\displaystyle r_{3}= \lim_{t \rightarrow - \sqrt{2}\ (1+i)} (t+\sqrt{2}\ (1+i))\ f(t)$

$\displaystyle r_{4}= \lim_{t \rightarrow -\sqrt{2}\ (1-i)} (t+\sqrt{2}\ (1-i))\ f(t)$ (4)

... and then integrate 'term by term'...

Kind regards
