# Show a detail prove of : $\int_{0}^{1}\int_{0}^{1}\left({x\over 1-xy}\cdot{\ln{x}-\ln{y}\over \ln{x}+\ln{y}}\right)\mathrm dx\mathrm dy=1-2\gamma$

Variation of my recent post. Strangely it leads to the result in term of Euler's constant;$\gamma$

Prove that

$$\int_{0}^{1}\int_{0}^{1}\left({x\over 1-xy}\cdot{\ln{x}-\ln{y}\over \ln{x}+\ln{y}}\right)\mathrm dx\mathrm dy=1-2\gamma$$

Where $\gamma=0.577215...$;Euler's constant.

My try:

$u=xy$ then $du=ydx$

$$\int_{0}^{1}\int_{0}^{y}{{u\over y^2}\over 1-u}\cdot{\ln{u\over y^2}\over \ln{u}}\mathrm du\mathrm dy$$

I can't understand how to or even glimsely to solve double integrals.

Any chance can someone show me a detail of the answer. Thank you.

• Changing the order of integration we get $$\int_0^1du\frac{u}{1-u}\int_u^1dv\frac{1}{v^2}\left(1-2\frac{\log(v)}{\log(u)}\right)$$ the inner integral is straightforward and you only need integral representation 5 from here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… Jan 3, 2017 at 11:27
