Apparently I am rusty on my calculus as well. I have been through all the basic calculus classes (1-3) but I cannot seem to remember how to integrate that before you plug in your bounds. It is not possible to make a u-substitution either of u=log x or 1/log x... The only thing I can think of is integration by parts - tabular method but I do not see how this would work when you have one term that will never differentiate to zero. Dr. Silverman, how did you get this answer?
