When random walkers help solving intriguing integrals

Emmanuel Trizac (LPTMS, Université Paris-Sud)

We will discuss the properties of a family of integrals involving the cardinal sine fuction, first studied by Borwein & Borwein. The aim is to provide a physicist’s perspective onto a curious change of behaviour occurring within this family, noticed when benchmarking computer algebra packages, and initially attributed to a bug. A number of non-trivial generalizations will be obtained.
