Hi Jens,

sorry, your integral does not converge on the interval [0, something],
because your integrand is c_(-1)*x^(-1) + c_(1)*x + ... near x=0:

expr = Cos[x]/Sqrt[(a*Sin[x/2])^2 + (b*x)^2];
Normal[Simplify[Series[expr, {x, 0, 1}], a > 0 && b > 0]]//InputForm
Out[2]//InputForm=
2/(Sqrt[a^2 + 4*b^2]*x) +
((-11*a^2 - 48*b^2)*x)/(12*(a^2 + 4*b^2)^(3/2))
