Question: what's the analytic expression for Integrate[1/t,{t,1,x}]?

If you say Log[x] you're right, but what IS Log[x], and how do you compute it? Log[x] is just another name for the integral listed above; it's not a

Integrate[x/((a + x)*(b + (c + x^2)^2)), {x, 0, Infinity}]

IS an analytic expression.

A simpler form, if it exists, probably depends a lot on whether a, b, c are imaginary, complex, real, positive, negative, et cetera.
