### Log Cosine Integral $\int_0^{\pi/2} \theta^2 \log ^4(2\cos \theta) d\theta =\frac{33\pi^7}{4480}+\frac{3\pi}{2}\zeta^2(3)$

$$I=\int_0^{\pi/2} \theta^2 \log ^4(2\cos \theta) d\theta =\frac{33\pi^7}{4480}+\frac{3\pi}{2}\zeta^2(3).$$ Note $\zeta(3)$ is given by $$\zeta(3)=\sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{1}{n^3}.$$ I have a ...

### $I=\frac{1}{\pi}\int_0^{\pi/3}\log\big( \mu(\theta)+\sqrt{\mu^2(\theta)-1} \big)\ d\theta, \quad \mu(\theta)=\frac{1+2\cos\theta}{2}.$

Hi I am trying to calculate this integral: $$I=\frac{1}{\pi}\int_0^{\pi/3}\log\left( \frac{1+2\cos\theta}{2}+\sqrt{\bigg( \frac{1+2\cos\theta}{2} \bigg)^2-1} \right)\ d\theta.$$ The ...

### LogSine Generating Fn $\int_0^\pi \big(2\sin\frac{\theta}{2}\big)^x e^{\theta y} d\theta$

This is related to generating functions for Ls (Log Sine Integrals.) I am trying to calculate $$\int_{0}^{\pi}\left[2\sin\left(\theta \over 2\right)\right]^{x} {\rm e}^{\theta y}\,{\rm d}\theta.$$ ...
