PrincipalValue

FilledSmallSquare PrincipalValue is an option for Integrate that specifies whether the Cauchy principal value should be found for a definite integral.

FilledSmallSquare The default setting PrincipalValue->False computes ordinary Riemann integrals.

FilledSmallSquare Setting PrincipalValue->True gives finite answers for integrals that had single pole divergences with PrincipalValue->False.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 3.5.8.
