E816  Considerations sur quelques formules integrales dont les valeurs peuvent etre exprimees, en certains cas, par la quadrature du cercle
(Thoughts on certain integral formulas for which the values can be expressed under certain circumstances by the squaring of ther circle)
Summary:
This paper is concerned with several families of definite integrals of rational functions, which, upon integration, have values expressible purely in terms of trigonometric functions.
