Mathematica 6.0.3.0 has trouble computing the quite simple integral
In[2]:= FullSimplify[ Integrate[ (b + k*x) / k^2 * Exp[-k*x] *
Sin[k*a] * Sin[k*y] , {k, 0,Infinity},
Assumptions -> x > 0 && Im[a] == 0 && Im[b] == 0 && Im[y] == 0 ]]
Out[2]= -(1/8) I (b + 2 I x Log[1 + (4 a y)/(x^2 + (a - y)^2)])
which is obviously wrong. Repeating the computation, I get different
results.
What should I do to get a correct answer?
(This one I can do by hand, but I have more complicated similar ones
to evaluate.)
