Question
How to solve
Definite integral question...

Integrate [with limits from 0 to infinity] f(x)dx

where f(x) = l(x)/c(x)

and
l(x) = log(x)
and
c(x) = 1 + x^(1/3)

Thanks...

I  looked at that for awhile.    Eventually  I decided to integrate by part where
u = log(x) and dv = 1 + x^(1/3) dx.  That gives du = 1/x dx and v = x + (3/4)x^(4/3).

The answer is then uv - integral(v du).

That works out to be log(x)(x + (3/4)x^(4/3)) - integral((1/x)(x + (3/4)x^(4/3))).

Inside the integral, take (1/x)(x + (3/4)x^(4/3)) and multiply it out, giving
1 + (3/4)x^(1/3).  That integrates to x + (9/16)x^(4/3) + C.

This makes the answer be log(x)(x + (3/4)x^(4/3)) - x - (9/16)x^(4/3) + C.

Expertise

Any kind of calculus question you want. I also have answered some questions in Physics (mass, momentum, falling bodies), Chemistry (charge, reactions, symbols, molecules), and Biology (reproduction, insusion of chemicals into bloodstream).

Experience

Experience in the area: I have tutored students in all areas of mathematics since 1980. Education/Credentials: BSand MS in Mathematics from Oregon State University, where I completed sophomore course in Physics and Chemistry. I received both degrees with high honors. Awards and Honors: I have passed Actuarial tests 100, 110, and 135.

Publications
Maybe not a publication, but I have respond to well oveer 8,500 questions on the PC. Well over 2,000 of them have been in calculus.

Education/Credentials
I aquired well over 40 hours of upper division courses. This was well over the number that were required. I graduated with honors in both my BS and MS degree from Oregon State University. I was allowed to jump into a few courses at college a year early.

Awards and Honors
I have been nominated as the expert of the month several times. All of my scores right now are at least a 9.8 average (out of 10).

Past/Present Clients
My past clients have been students at OSU, students at the college in South Seattle, referals from a company, friends and aquantenances, people from my church, and people like you from all over the world.
