    Anyway, is there a reason why you were seeking to avoid them?

    If I am a conic section, then my e = ∞

    Just so we don't have this discussion in the future, my definition of the natural numbers includes 0.

    Fair enough, seems a rather subjective matter...to me polylog and polygamma manipulations are okay, but I also have no qualms about using contour integration etc.

    Re: Higher Level Integration Marathon & Questions

    I think you guys should enrol in Extreme Integration (MATH1052), or if you're feeling ambitious try Insane Integration (MATH3025)!

    PM me for details.

    Prove the integral diverges if the argument of the exponential does not describe an ellipse.

    Challenge: Formulate a generalisation to the above integral in higher dimensions. (Experience with Linear Algebra will be very handy)

    Well I did say I was sketching a method (i.e. not giving the full answer).

    Oh didn't see you edited it, was the divergence thing always there and I just blind before?

    In any case, we can still represent the quadratic form by a symmetric, hence diagonalisable matrix Q. If the quadratic form does not represent an ellipse, then at least one eigenvalue is non-positive, which implies that at least one of the integrals in the above product of single-variable integrals is infinite and we are done.

    I think it was there before. I remember answering it in my head but then forgetting to comment on it in my post. Haha
