Inverse Hyperbolic Cosecant Form

$\ds \int \frac {\d x} {x \sqrt {x^2 + a^2} } = -\frac 1 a \csch^{-1} {\frac x a} + C$

Logarithm Form

For $x \in \R_{\ne 0}$:

$\ds \int \frac {\d x} {x \sqrt {x^2 + a^2} } = -\frac 1 a \map \ln {\frac a x + \frac {\sqrt {a^2 + x^2} } {\size x} } + C$

Reciprocal Logarithm Form

$\displaystyle \int \frac {\d x} {x \sqrt {x^2 + a^2} } = \frac 1 a \map \ln {\frac x {a + \sqrt {x^2 + a^2} } } + C$
