Before you think I haven't tried anything, please read.

I've been trying to evaluate $$\int _0^1\frac{\ln ^2\left(1-x\right)\ln ^5\left(1+x\right)}{1+x}\:dx$$ But I can't find a way to simplify it. Integration by parts is not valid since we face convergence issues. Subbing the $1-x$ term is also not quite helpful here. I also tried to use the sub $\frac{1}{1+x}$ but this is not useful either. Using algebraic identities isn't that useful either, since we run into similar difficulty integrals. Since these attempts do not lead to anything, how can I approach it?

    $\begingroup$ I would start with $$\int_0^1\frac{\log^2(1-x)\log^5(1+x)}{1+x}\,dx=\left.\left(\frac{\partial^2}{\partial \alpha^2}\frac{\partial^5}{\partial \beta^5}\int_0^1 (1-x)^\alpha(1+x)^{\beta-1}\,dx\right)\right|_{(\alpha,\beta)=(0,0)}$$Or you could begin by IBP with $u=\log^2(1-x)$ and $v=\frac15\log^4(1+x)$ and proceed similarly. $\endgroup$ – Mark Viola Aug 20 '20 at 16:21
  • $\begingroup$ @MarkViola that 1st idea is pretty clever, but im not sure how to proceed with it, also doesnt the u*v product diverges? for the IBP $\endgroup$ – user809806 Aug 20 '20 at 16:29
  • $\begingroup$ It would diverge, so you need to write it as a limit: $$\lim_{\varepsilon\to 0^+}\left(\frac15 \log(\varepsilon) \log(2-\varepsilon) +\frac25\int_{0}^{1-\varepsilon} \frac{\log(1-x)\log^4(1+x)}{1-x}\,dx)\right)$$ $\endgroup$ – Mark Viola Aug 20 '20 at 17:00
  • $\begingroup$ Set 1+x=y then expand $\ln^2(y-2)$ in series . $\endgroup$ – Ali Shadhar Aug 20 '20 at 17:23
  • $\begingroup$ Could you elaborate on the expansion? i dont know it, maybe even post a solution? thanks $\endgroup$ – user809806 Aug 20 '20 at 21:04

$$\int_0^1\frac{\ln^2(1-x)\ln^5(1+x)}{1+x}dx\overset{1+x\to x}{=}\int_1^2\frac{\ln^2(2-x)\ln^5x}{x}dx$$

$$=\ln^2(2)\int_1^2\frac{\ln^5x}{x}dx+2\ln(2)\int_1^2\frac{\ln(1-x/2)\ln^5x}{x}dx+\int_1^2\frac{\ln^2(1-x/2)\ln^5x}{x}dx$$ write $\ln(1-x/2)=-\sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{x^n}{n2^n}$ for the first integral and write $\ln^2(1-x/2)=2\sum_{n=1}^\infty(\frac{H_n}{n2^n}-\frac{1}{n^22^n})x^n$ for the third integral

$$=\frac16\ln^8(2)+\sum_{n=1}^\infty\left(\frac{2H_n}{n}-\frac{2}{n^2}-\frac{2\ln(2)}{n}\right)\int_1^2 \frac{x^{n-1}\ln^5x}{2^n}dx$$

$$=\frac16\ln^8(2)+\sum_{n=1}^\infty\left(\frac{2H_n}{n}-\frac{2}{n^2}-\frac{2\ln(2)}{n}\right)$$ $$\left(\frac{\ln^5(2)}{n}-\frac{5\ln^4(2)}{n^2}+\frac{20\ln^3(2)}{n^3}-\frac{60\ln^2(2)}{n^4}+\frac{120\ln(2)}{n^5}-\frac{120}{n^6}+\frac{120}{n^62^n}\right)$$

$$=\frac16\ln^8(2)-2\ln^6(2)\zeta(2)+12\ln^5(2)\zeta(3)-\frac{85}{2}\ln^4(2)\zeta(4)+40\ln^3(2)[5\zeta(5)-\zeta(2)\zeta(3)]$$ $$-30\ln^2(2)[11\zeta(6)-2\zeta^2(3)]-240\ln(2)\left[\zeta(4)\zeta(3)+\zeta(2)\zeta(5)-4\zeta(7)+\text{Li}_7\left(\frac12\right)\right]$$ $$-300\zeta(8)+240\zeta(3)\zeta(5)-240\text{Li}_8\left(\frac12\right)+240\sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{H_n}{n^72^n}\approx 0.113272.$$

There is no closed form for your integral as $\sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{H_n}{n^72^n}$ has no closed form.


Remark:

The closed form of $\int_0^1\frac{\ln^2(1-x)\ln^a(1+x)}{1+x}dx$ can be expressed in terms of $\ln, \pi, \zeta$ and $\text{Li}_r$ plus $\sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{H_n}{n^{a+2}2^n}$. What I know of is that there is no closed form for such series with $a>2$ and the case $a=2$ is calculated here.

Generalization:

$$I_a=\int_0^1\frac{\ln^2(1-x)\ln^a(1+x)}{1+x}dx\overset{1+x\to x}{=}\int_1^2\frac{\ln^2(2-x)\ln^ax}{x}dx$$

$$=\ln^2(2)\int_1^2\frac{\ln^ax}{x}dx+2\ln(2)\int_1^2\frac{\ln(1-x/2)\ln^ax}{x}dx+\int_1^2\frac{\ln^2(1-x/2)\ln^ax}{x}dx$$ write $\ln(1-x/2)=-\sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{x^n}{n2^n}$ for the first integral and write $\ln^2(1-x/2)=2\sum_{n=1}^\infty(\frac{H_n}{n2^n}-\frac{1}{n^22^n})x^n$ for the third integral

$$=\frac{\ln^{a+3}(2)}{a+1}+\sum_{n=1}^\infty\left(\frac{2H_n}{n}-\frac{2}{n^2}-\frac{2\ln(2)}{n}\right)\int_1^2 \frac{x^{n-1}\ln^ax}{2^n}dx$$

$$=\frac{\ln^{a+3}(2)}{a+1}+\sum_{n=1}^\infty\left(\frac{2H_n}{n}-\frac{2}{n^2}-\frac{2\ln(2)}{n}\right)\left(\frac{(-1)^{a-1}a!}{n^{a+1}2^n}+a!\sum_{k=1}^{a+1}\frac{(-1)^{k-1}\ln^{a-k+1}(2)}{n^k(a-k+1)!}\right)$$

$$=\frac{\ln^{a+3}(2)}{a+1}-2(-1)^aa!\left[\sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{H_n}{n^{a+2}2^n}-\text{Li}_{a+3}\left(\frac12\right)-\ln(2)\text{Li}_{a+2}\left(\frac12\right)\right]$$

$$+2a!\sum_{k=1}^{a+1}\frac{(-1)^{k-1}\ln^{a-k+1}(2)}{(a-k+1)!}\left[\sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{H_n}{n^{k+1}}-\zeta(k+2)-\ln(2)\zeta(k+1)\right]$$

$$\because \quad\sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{H_n}{n^r}=\frac{r+2}{2}\zeta(r+1)-\frac12\sum_{j=1}^{r-2}\zeta(j+1)\zeta(r-j)$$

$$\therefore\quad I_a=\frac{\ln^{a+3}(2)}{a+1}-2(-1)^aa!\left[\sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{H_n}{n^{a+2}2^n}-\text{Li}_{a+3}\left(\frac12\right)-\ln(2)\text{Li}_{a+2}\left(\frac12\right)\right]$$ $$+2a!\sum_{k=1}^{a+1}\frac{(-1)^{k-1}\ln^{a-k+1}(2)}{(a-k+1)!}\left[\frac{k+1}{2}\zeta(k+2)-\ln(2)\zeta(k+1)-\frac12\sum_{j=1}^{k-1}\zeta(j+1)\zeta(k-j+1)\right]$$

Bonus: $$\int _0^1\frac{\ln ^4\left(1-x\right)\ln ^3\left(1+x\right)}{1+x}\:dx$$ Let's make use of the algebraic identity

$a^4b^3=\frac{1}{70}\left(a+b\right)^7-\frac{1}{70}\left(a-b\right)^7-\frac{1}{5}a^6b-\frac{3}{5}a^2b^5-\frac{1}{35}b^7$.


$$=\int _0^1\frac{1}{70}\frac{\ln ^7\left(1-x^2\right)}{1+x}-\frac{1}{70}\frac{\ln ^7\left(\frac{1-x}{1+x}\right)}{1+x}-\frac{1}{5}\frac{\ln ^6\left(1-x\right)\ln \left(1+x\right)}{1+x}$$ $$-\frac{3}{5}\frac{\ln ^2\left(1-x\right)\ln ^5\left(1+x\right)}{1+x}-\frac{1}{35}\frac{\ln ^7\left(1+x\right)}{1+x}\:dx$$


Here we can use the same strategy found in the book (Almost) Impossible integrals, Sums, and Series page $80$. $$\frac{1}{70}\int _0^1\frac{\ln ^7\left(1-x^2\right)}{1+x}\:dx=\frac{1}{70}\underbrace{\int _0^1\frac{\ln ^7\left(1-x^2\right)}{1-x^2}\left(1-x\right)\:dx}_{t=x^2}$$ $$=\frac{1}{140}\int _0^1\frac{\ln ^7\left(1-t\right)}{1-t}\frac{\left(1-\sqrt{t}\right)}{\sqrt{t}}\:dt=-\frac{1}{2240}\int _0^1\:\frac{\ln ^8\left(1-t\right)}{t^{\frac{3}{2}}}\:dt$$ $$=-\frac{1}{2240}\lim_{\alpha\rightarrow -1/2\\\beta\rightarrow 0}\frac{\partial ^8}{\partial \beta ^8}\operatorname{B}\left(\alpha ,\beta \right)$$ $$=-\frac{7017}{16}\zeta \left(8\right)+1296\ln \left(2\right)\zeta \left(7\right)-\frac{711}{2}\ln ^2\left(2\right)\zeta \left(6\right)-72\zeta \left(2\right)\zeta ^2\left(3\right)+432\zeta \left(3\right)\zeta \left(5\right)$$ $$+\frac{96}{5}\ln ^5\left(2\right)\zeta \left(3\right)-96\ln ^3\left(2\right)\zeta \left(2\right)\zeta \left(3\right)+288\ln ^3\left(2\right)\zeta \left(5\right)+144\ln ^2\left(2\right)\zeta ^2\left(3\right)$$ $$-324\ln \left(2\right)\zeta \left(3\right)\zeta \left(4\right)-432\ln \left(2\right)\zeta \left(2\right)\zeta \left(5\right)+\frac{8}{35}\ln ^8\left(2\right)-\frac{16}{5}\ln ^6\left(2\right)\zeta \left(2\right)-54\ln ^4\left(2\right)\zeta \left(4\right)$$

Thanks to Ali Shather we may use the value of this integral which he evaluated nicely in this same thread. $$-\frac{3}{5}\int _0^1\frac{\ln ^2\left(1-x\right)\ln ^5\left(1+x\right)}{1+x}\:dx$$ $$=180\zeta \left(8\right)-144\zeta \left(3\right)\zeta \left(5\right)-576\ln \left(2\right)\zeta \left(7\right)+144\ln \left(2\right)\zeta \left(2\right)\zeta \left(5\right)+144\ln \left(2\right)\zeta \left(3\right)\zeta \left(4\right)$$ $$+198\ln ^2\left(2\right)\zeta \left(6\right)-36\ln ^2\left(2\right)\zeta ^2\left(3\right)-120\ln ^3\left(2\right)\zeta \left(5\right)+24\ln ^3\left(2\right)\zeta \left(2\right)\zeta \left(3\right)+\frac{51}{2}\ln ^4\left(2\right)\zeta \left(4\right)$$ $$-\frac{36}{5}\ln ^5\left(2\right)\zeta \left(3\right)-144\sum _{k=1}^{\infty }\frac{H_k}{k^7\:2^k}+144\operatorname{Li}_8\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)+\frac{6}{5}\ln ^6\left(2\right)\zeta \left(2\right)$$ $$+144\ln \left(2\right)\operatorname{Li}_7\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)-\frac{1}{10}\ln ^8\left(2\right)$$


$$-\frac{1}{35}\underbrace{\int _0^1\frac{\ln ^7\left(1+x\right)}{1+x}\:dx}_{t=\ln\left(1+x\right)}=-\frac{1}{280}\ln ^8\left(2\right)$$


Collecting the results we find $$\int _0^1\frac{\ln ^4\left(1-x\right)\ln ^3\left(1+x\right)}{1+x}\:dx=-\frac{1497}{8}\zeta \left(8\right)+288\zeta \left(3\right)\zeta \left(5\right)+720\ln \left(2\right)\zeta \left(7\right)$$
