    Hi,
    Could some one tell me how to do the following indefinite integral


    integral { ln (sin x) dx }

    I thought I can do this by integration by parts. But it doesn't seem to work.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    Thanks for every one who responded. I made a mistake. It was the improper integral, that I needed to find.

    Actually the definite integral I needed to find is integral {ln (t*cos t) dt.}

    I think I should be able to do it now with the above help.

    Thanks for the help again.
