Andy,
How about...
step1 = Integrate[1/(1 + x^2 + x^4), x];
ComplexExpand[Re[step1], TargetFunctions -> {Re, Im}];
f[x_] = Simplify[%]
(1/12)*((-Sqrt[3])*ArcTan[2 - x, (-Sqrt[3])*x] +
Sqrt[3]*ArcTan[2 - x, Sqrt[3]*x] -
Sqrt[3]*ArcTan[2 + x, (-Sqrt[3])*x] +
Sqrt[3]*ArcTan[2 + x, Sqrt[3]*x] -
3*Log[1 - x + x^2] + 3*Log[1 + x + x^2])
Plot[f[x], {x, -10, 10}];
You don't need Algebra`ReIm` and you will often have to use ComplexExpand on
complex analysis problems. Think of ComplexExpand as being more a
ComplexSimplify command.
Notice that Mathematica used the two argument ArcTan, which is a pretty neat
function!

I am trying to get the real part of an integral (see below).
<< Algebra`ReIm`
Integrate[1/(1 + x^2 + x^4), x]
Re[%]
I am getting the error:
"$IterationLimit::itlim: Iteration limit of 4096 exceeded."
Any advice?
AK
