x^(-1/2) sin(2x^(-3/2))

After trying to figure out this problem, I have the suspicion that the antiderivative cannot be found using substition method, would this assumption be correct?

**Reiny**, Saturday, February 11, 2012 at 7:18pmI too have messed around with this a bit, and can't see to get anywhere

Tried integration by parts, only got worse and worse.

I sent it through the Wolfram integrator , and it came up with terrible looking answer containing complex numbers.

What level is this?

Are you sure there is no typo?
