Expecting it to be the most promising, I have checked Bronstein's thesis
publication of 1990 (57 pages, 2.4MB, barely readable digitization). I
can assure our author that this contains no "prior art" concerning an
extension of Hermite reduction (p. 132) to multiple non-integer
exponents or to a lowering of exponents: the equations agree with those
in the Symbolic Integration Tutorial of 1998/2000 and fail for multiple
non-integer exponents because the integrated term is again too
restricted. So only Goursat (1902, p. 238-241) and Hebisch (2012,
unpublished) remain.
