Contour integraion of a rational function of logarithm and exponential

$$\int_{0}^\infty \frac{\log(x)\cos(x)}{(x^2+1)^2}\,dx = – \frac{\pi \mathrm{Ei}(1)}{4e}-\frac{\pi}{4e}$$   $$\textit{proof}$$ Consider the following function $$f(z) = \frac{\log(z) }{(z^2+1)^2}e^{iz}$$ Now consider the principle logarithm where $$\log(z) = \log|r|+i \theta \,\,\, , \theta \,\in (-\pi , \pi]$$ Consider the following contour   Then by … Continue reading
