This question already has an answer here:

Please solve:

$\int_{0}^{1}\sqrt[3]{x\log\frac 1x} $

I have tried substituting but every time it is getting more complicated. Please help.

With substitutions $\ln\dfrac1x=u$ and then $\dfrac43u=v$ we have $$I=\int_0^\infty u^\frac13e^{-\frac43u}du=\left(\dfrac34\right)^\frac43\int_0^\infty v^\frac13e^{-v}dv=\left(\dfrac34\right)^\frac43\Gamma\left(\dfrac43\right)$$

  • $\begingroup$ $\Gamma$ is the upper gamma function yes? $\endgroup$ – Holo Oct 23 '17 at 11:39

set $u = -\ln x$ then $dx -e^{-u} du$

$$I=\int_0^1 \sqrt[3]{x\log{\frac{1}x}} \, \mathrm dx$$

then set $v= 4/3u $ so that $$I=3/4\int_0^\infty e^{-v} (3/4v)^{1/3}dv = {\left(\frac{3}{4}\right)}^{4/3}\int_0^\infty e^{-v} v^{1/3}dv ={\left(\frac{3}{4}\right)}^{4/3}\Gamma(\frac{4}{3}) = {\left(\frac{3}{4}\right)}^{4/3}\frac{1}{3}\Gamma(\frac{1}{3}).$$
