Dear Raghav Somani,

You cannot integrate xx .This is because the Antiderivative of x^x is not reducible to any elementary functions -- which is not at all unusual. This is true of MOST functions. Calculus books usually list antiderivatives of a hundred or so rather simple functions, and toward the end of the list the antiderivatives get really bizarre. It does not take much effort to come up with a function which can not be precisely integrated. x^x is one.


Hope this helped you immensely...

All the Very Best & Good Luck to you ,,
