I'm at work, no time to examine it in detail at this time. The integral formulae at least seem likely to be fairly trivial, possibly Fourier series (which often yield Pi-containing results by way of series expansions) in disguise. Anyway, might be some fun math exercises here. -Ernst p.s.: please try not to let laughter at the Borat-style mangled english subject line distract you from your work here. ;) p.p.s.: If someone would be kind enough to format the attached in nice LaTeX-style, that would be appreciated. Off to work...
