    Why is the answer negative?

    Think about the graph.
    What happens when x=0?

    @Square: Yes, now integrate it within the boundaries of 1 and -1 to give me a number.


    @TheTallOne: Dammit, its a trick question! A kinda lame one, I know.

    I thought it can't be done when the domain of integration includes 0?

    It doesn't converge. Happy?

    Ok fine, I'll give you another;

    That's in a simple enough form.

    Why exactly?

    e^{i \pi} = -1

    Presumably you mean ei*pi, rather than ei*pi.

    The answer is -1. Back to you - prove it

    I'd be surprised if someone at interview was asked to expand e^(ix) then note the taylor series for the trig functions (although it is quite a pleasing result).

    Lol, it was a trick. e^(i*pi) = -1 but e^i*pi is already in its simplest form.


    And I don't know how to ruddy well prove it. xD

    A hack way of doing it is to differentiate

    f(x) = e^(ix)/(cosx + isinx) and hence work out what f(x) is.

    A strange maths troll indeed. An interview with your kind of questions actually would worry me.

    Lmao, I'm just kinda bored so I asked inane questions and sounded stupid even though I'm obviously incredibly smart and can even differentiate x^x^x^x^x^x in under ten seconds with respect to x.

    Sodding LaTeX

    x^x^x^x^x^x (x^(-1+x^x^x^x)+x^x^x^x^x Log[x] (x^(-1+x^x^x)+x^x^x^x Log[x] (x^(-1+x^x)+x^x^x Log[x] (x^(-1+x)+x^x Log[x] (1+Log[x])))))

    Done
