  1. 1-cotx=1-(cosx/sinx)= 1 - ((1/2)(cot(x/2))) - ((1/2)(sec(x/2)))
    how to simplify this inside "ln"?

    can we substract them adding ln(loge) infront of them?

  2. I think you're stuck. There's just no way to get things to just a product.

    According to wolframalpha, the integral is not elementary.
