Hi, Seems like Mathemtica can solve this both symbolically as well as Numerically. But if you want exact symbolic solution it needs some time to integrate. Here is the code. (*Symbolic Integration*) re=Assuming[\[Lambda] \[Element] Reals && \[Epsilon] > 0, Integrate[ Exp[-I*\[Lambda]*(x + y)]*(x - y)*((Sinh[Pi*(x + I*\[Epsilon])]* Sinh[Pi*(y - I*\[Epsilon])])^-2 - (Sinh[ Pi*(x - I*\[Epsilon])]* Sinh[Pi*(y + I*\[Epsilon])])^-2), {x, -Infinity, Infinity}, {y, -Infinity, Infinity}]] Lets form a function that takes Lambda and Epsilon and returns the result of the integral as a pair of real numbers {RealPart, ImaginaryPart}. (*Integral as a function of Parameters Lambda and Epsilon*) IntegrationResult[Lambda_?NumericQ, Epsilon_?NumericQ] := Module[{val}, val = re /. \[Lambda] -> Lambda /. \[Epsilon] -> Epsilon; {Re[val], Im[val]}]; IntegrationResult[1.5, 2.] Now for the numerical integration you need to specify numerical values for the Lambda and the Epsilon. This can be acheived by using the With function of Mathematica along with NIntegrate. I see that MAthematica can integrate even with Imaginary value of Lambda. (*Numerical Integration*) With[{\[Lambda] = 1. + .2 I, \[Epsilon] = 0.1}, NIntegrate[ Exp[-I*\[Lambda]*(x + y)]*(x - y)*((Sinh[Pi*(x + I*\[Epsilon])]* Sinh[Pi*(y - I*\[Epsilon])])^-2 - (Sinh[ Pi*(x - I*\[Epsilon])]* Sinh[Pi*(y + I*\[Epsilon])])^-2), {x, -Infinity, Infinity}, {y, -Infinity, Infinity}]] I hope this solves your problem. However you can see with Mathematica even nasty seeming integrals sometimes behave quite like a easy one.
