Here are two integrals:

$$1:\hspace{2cm} \int_0^1\frac{\log x\arctan\left(\frac{\log x}{2\pi}\right)}{1+x^2}dx=\frac{\pi^2}{4}\log\left(\frac{192\pi^4}{\Gamma\left(\frac14\right)^8}\right)+\frac{\pi C}{2} $$

$$2:\hspace{1.7cm}\int_0^1\frac{\log x\arctan\left(\frac{\pi}{2\log x}\right)}{1+x^2}dx=\frac{\pi C}{2}+\frac{\pi^2}{8}-\frac{\pi^2}{24}\log\left(\frac{A^{36}}{2\pi^3}\right) $$

where $C$ is Catalan's constant and $A$ is Glaisher's constant.

My proof for both of them uses Feynman's trick on $$G(a)=\int_0^1\frac{\log x\arctan\left(\frac{a}{\log x}\right)}{1+x^2}dx $$ but it requires to know some values of $\psi^{-2}(x)$, which I had to look up on Wikipedia.

So, given the "nice" closed forms, I hope there is a way to evaluate them without using Feynman technique.

For instance in $(1)$ I tried to expand the $\arctan$ as a series, and then use the fact that $$\int_0^1\frac{\log^{2n}(x)}{1+x^2}dx=\frac{(-1)^n}{2}\left(\frac{\pi}{2}\right)^{2n+1}E_{2n} $$ to get a series with Euler numbers. But this is wrong, since $\left|\frac{\log x}{2\pi}\right|>1$ for $0<x<1$, and so the series is not convergent. In contrast, if one tries the same approach on $(2)$, where the series is convergent due to $\left|\frac{\pi}{2\log x}\right|<1$, one gets integrals of the form $$\int_0^1\frac{\log^{-2n}(x)}{1+x^2}dx$$ which are not convergent at all.

So how would you do it?

Original Post

I've got the first one out, but I'm not sure if the solution meets the criteria since I use double integral which is in some sense, the same with Feynman's technique. Alas, I reckon I write it down here for the funzies.

lemma 1 $$ I\left( a \right) =\int_0^1{\ln \left( \Gamma \left( t+a \right) \right)}\mathrm{d}t=\int_a^{a+1}{\ln \left( \Gamma \left( t \right) \right)}\mathrm{d}t=a\ln \left( a \right) -a+\frac{1}{2}\ln \left( 2\pi \right) $$ proof : \begin{align*} I\left( 0 \right) =&\int_0^1{\ln \left( \Gamma \left( t \right) \right)}\mathrm{d}t=\int_0^1{\ln \left( \Gamma \left( 1-t \right) \right)}\mathrm{d}t \\ =&\frac{1}{2}\int_0^1{\ln \left( \Gamma \left( t \right) \Gamma \left( 1-t \right) \right)}\mathrm{d}t=\frac{1}{2}\int_0^1{\ln \left( \frac{\pi}{\sin \left( \pi t \right)} \right)}\mathrm{d}t=\frac{1}{2}\ln \left( 2\pi \right) \end{align*} Also $$ I'\left( a \right) =\frac{\mathrm{d}}{\mathrm{d}a}\int_a^{a+1}{\ln \left( \Gamma \left( t \right) \right)}\mathrm{d}t=\ln \left( \Gamma \left( a+1 \right) \right) -\ln \left( \Gamma \left( a \right) \right) =\ln \left( a \right) $$ Therefore $$ I\left( a \right) =\int_0^a{I'\left( t \right) \mathrm{d}t}-I\left( 0 \right) =\int_0^a{\ln \left( t \right) \mathrm{d}t}-I\left( 0 \right) =a\ln \left( a \right) -a+\frac{1}{2}\ln \left( 2\pi \right) $$

Integral 1 \begin{align*} I_1=&\int_0^1{\frac{\ln \left( x \right)}{1+x^2}\mathrm{arctan} \left( \frac{\ln \left( x \right)}{2\pi} \right)}\mathrm{d}x \\ =&\int_0^1{\frac{\ln \left( x \right)}{1+x^2}\left( \frac{\pi}{2}-\mathrm{arctan} \left( \frac{2\pi}{\ln \left( x \right)} \right) \right)}\mathrm{d}x \\ =&\frac{\pi}{2}\int_0^1{\frac{\ln \left( x \right)}{1+x^2}}\mathrm{d}x-\int_0^1{\frac{\ln \left( x \right)}{1+x^2}\mathrm{arctan} \left( \frac{2\pi}{\ln \left( x \right)} \right)}\mathrm{d}x \\ =&\frac{\pi}{2}\mathbf{G}-\int_0^1{\frac{\ln \left( x \right)}{1+x^2}\mathrm{arctan} \left( \frac{2\pi}{\ln \left( x \right)} \right)}\mathrm{d}x \\ =&\frac{\pi}{2}\mathbf{G}-2\pi \int_0^1{\int_0^1{\frac{1}{1+x^2}\left( \frac{\ln ^2\left( x \right)}{\ln ^2\left( x \right) +4\pi ^2t^2} \right)}}\mathrm{d}t\mathrm{d}x \\ =&\frac{\pi}{2}\mathbf{G}-\frac{\pi ^2}{2}+4\pi ^2\int_0^1{\int_0^1{\frac{t}{1+x^2}\left( \frac{2\pi t}{\ln ^2\left( x \right) +4\pi ^2t^2} \right)}}\mathrm{d}t\mathrm{d}x \\ =&\frac{\pi}{2}\mathbf{G}-\frac{\pi ^2}{2}+4\pi ^2\int_0^{\infty}{\int_0^1{\frac{te^{-x}}{1+e^{-2x}}\left( \frac{2\pi t}{x^2+4\pi ^2t^2} \right)}}\mathrm{d}t\mathrm{d}x \end{align*} The last step, $-\ln \left( x \right) \rightsquigarrow x$. Now, let's evaluate the integral expression solely by itself othewise this is getting out of hands. Anyway, \begin{align*} 4\pi ^2\int_0^1{\int_0^{\infty}{\frac{te^{-x}}{1+e^{-2x}}\left( \frac{2\pi t}{x^2+4\pi ^2t^2} \right)}}\mathrm{d}x\mathrm{d}t =&4\pi ^2\int_0^1{\int_0^{\infty}{t\left( \sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{\left( -1 \right) ^ne^{-\left( 2n+1 \right) x}} \right) \left( \int_0^{\infty}{\cos \left( xs \right) e^{-2\pi ts}\mathrm{d}s} \right)}}\mathrm{d}x\mathrm{d}t \\ =&4\pi ^2\int_0^1{\int_0^{\infty}{te^{-2\pi ts}\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{\left( -1 \right) ^n}\int_0^{\infty}{\cos \left( xs \right) e^{-\left( 2n+1 \right) x}\mathrm{d}x}}}\mathrm{d}s\mathrm{d}t \\ =&4\pi ^2\int_0^1{\int_0^{\infty}{te^{-2\pi ts}\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{\frac{\left( -1 \right) ^n\left( 2n+1 \right)}{\left( 2n+1 \right) ^2+s^2}}}}\mathrm{d}s\mathrm{d}t \\ =&\pi ^3\int_0^1{\int_0^{\infty}{te^{-2\pi ts}\mathrm{sech} \left( \frac{\pi s}{2} \right) \mathrm{d}s}}\mathrm{d}t \\ \stackrel{(*)}{=}&4\pi ^2\int_0^1{t\int_0^1{\frac{u^{4t}}{u^2+1}\mathrm{d}u}}\mathrm{d}t \\ =&4\pi ^2\int_0^1{t\int_0^1{u^{4t}\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{\left( -1 \right) ^nu^{2n}}\mathrm{d}u}}\mathrm{d}t \\ =&4\pi ^2\int_0^1{t\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{\left( -1 \right) ^n}\int_0^1{u^{4t+2n}\mathrm{d}u}}\mathrm{d}t \\ =&4\pi ^2\int_0^1{t\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{\frac{\left( -1 \right) ^n}{4t+2n+1}}}\mathrm{d}t \\ =&\pi ^2\int_0^1{t\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{\left( \frac{1}{n+t+1/4}-\frac{1}{n+t+3/4} \right)}}\mathrm{d}t \\ =&\pi ^2\int_0^1{t\left( \psi \left( t+\frac{3}{4} \right) -\psi \left( t+\frac{1}{4} \right) \right)}\mathrm{d}t \\ =&\left. \pi ^2t\ln \left( \frac{\Gamma \left( t+\frac{3}{4} \right)}{\Gamma \left( t+\frac{1}{4} \right)} \right) \right|_{0}^{1}+\pi ^2\left( I\left( \frac{1}{4} \right) -I\left( \frac{3}{4} \right) \right) \\ =&\frac{\pi ^2}{4}\ln \left( \frac{324\pi ^4}{\Gamma ^8\left( \frac{1}{4} \right)} \right) +\frac{\pi ^2}{4}\ln \left( \frac{16}{27} \right) +\frac{\pi ^2}{2} \end{align*} In (*), let $e^{-\frac{\pi s}{2}}=u$. So we have, at the end $$ I_1=\frac{\pi}{2}\mathbf{G}-\frac{\pi ^2}{2}+\frac{\pi ^2}{4}\ln \left( \frac{324\pi ^4}{\Gamma ^8\left( \frac{1}{4} \right)} \right) +\frac{\pi ^2}{4}\ln \left( \frac{16}{27} \right) +\frac{\pi ^2}{2}=\frac{\pi}{2}\mathbf{G}+\frac{\pi ^2}{4}\ln \left( \frac{192\pi ^4}{\Gamma ^8\left( \frac{1}{4} \right)} \right) $$

The General Case

Similar methedology shown above can be deployed for the development of the general case:

$$ \int_0^1{\frac{\ln \left( x \right)}{1+x^2}\mathrm{arctan} \left( \frac{\theta}{\ln \left( x \right)} \right)}\mathrm{d}x=\frac{\pi ^2}{4}\ln \left( \frac{\Gamma ^3\left( \frac{1}{4}+\frac{\theta}{2\pi} \right) \Gamma \left( \frac{3}{4} \right) \mathrm{G}^4\left( \frac{1}{4}+\frac{\theta}{2\pi} \right) \mathrm{G}^4\left( \frac{3}{4} \right)}{\Gamma ^3\left( \frac{1}{4} \right) \Gamma \left( \frac{3}{4}+\frac{\theta}{2\pi} \right) \mathrm{G}^4\left( \frac{3}{4}+\frac{\theta}{2\pi} \right) \mathrm{G}^4\left( \frac{1}{4} \right)} \right) $$

lemma 2 $$ \int_0^z{\ln \left( \Gamma \left( x \right) \right)}\mathrm{d}x=\frac{z}{2}\ln \left( 2\pi \right) +\frac{z\left( 1-z \right)}{2}+z\ln \left( \Gamma \left( z \right) \right) +\ln \left( \mathrm{G}\left( z+1 \right) \right) $$ proof : Omited, The way to derive this is to integrate the fourier expansion of log gamma funcion, which is VERY TEDIOUS IN EVERY ASPECT
lemma 3 \begin{align*} &\int_0^1{\ln \left( \Gamma \left( a+bt \right) \right)}\mathrm{d}t \\ =&\frac{1}{2}\ln \left( 2\pi \right) +\frac{1-b-2a}{2}+\frac{a}{b}\ln \left( \frac{\Gamma \left( a+b \right)}{\Gamma \left( a \right)} \right) +\ln \left( \Gamma \left( a+b \right) \right) -\frac{1}{b}\ln \left( \frac{\mathrm{G}\left( a+b+1 \right)}{\mathrm{G}\left( a+1 \right)} \right) \end{align*} proof : \begin{align*} &\int_0^1{\ln \left( \Gamma \left( a+bt \right) \right)}\mathrm{d}t=\frac{1}{b}\int_a^{a+b}{\ln \left( \Gamma \left( t \right) \right)}\mathrm{d}t=\frac{1}{b}\left( \int_0^{a+b}{\ln \left( \Gamma \left( t \right) \right)}\mathrm{d}t-\int_0^a{\ln \left( \Gamma \left( t \right) \right)}\mathrm{d}t \right) \\ =&\frac{1}{2}\ln \left( 2\pi \right) +\frac{1-b-2a}{2}+\frac{a}{b}\ln \left( \frac{\Gamma \left( a+b \right)}{\Gamma \left( a \right)} \right) +\ln \left( \Gamma \left( a+b \right) \right) -\frac{1}{b}\ln \left( \frac{\mathrm{G}\left( a+b+1 \right)}{\mathrm{G}\left( a+1 \right)} \right) \end{align*}

Put it into a different from: $$ I\left( \theta \right) =\frac{\pi ^2}{4}\ln \left( \frac{\Gamma ^3\left( \frac{1}{4}+\frac{\theta}{2\pi} \right)}{\Gamma \left( \frac{3}{4}+\frac{\theta}{2\pi} \right)} \right) +\pi ^2\ln \left( \frac{\mathrm{G}\left( \frac{1}{4}+\frac{\theta}{2\pi} \right)}{\mathrm{G}\left( \frac{3}{4}+\frac{\theta}{2\pi} \right)} \right) +\frac{\pi}{2}\mathbf{G} $$

The result

we can plug in different value into the expression and simplify it to get the result OP claimed, like: \begin{align*} I\left( \frac{\pi}{2} \right) =&\int_0^1{\frac{\ln \left( x \right)}{1+x^2}\mathrm{arctan} \left( \frac{\pi}{2\ln \left( x \right)} \right)}\mathrm{d}x=\frac{\pi ^2}{4}\ln \left( \Gamma ^3\left( \frac{1}{2} \right) \right) +\pi ^2\ln \left( \mathrm{G}\left( \frac{1}{2} \right) \right) +\frac{\pi}{2}\mathbf{G} \\ =&\frac{\pi ^2}{4}\ln \left( \Gamma ^3\left( \frac{1}{2} \right) \mathrm{G}^4\left( \frac{1}{2} \right) \right) +\frac{1}{2\pi}\mathrm{Cl}_2\left( \frac{\pi}{2} \right) =\frac{\pi ^2}{24}\ln \left( \frac{2\pi ^3}{\mathbf{A}^{36}} \right) +\frac{\pi ^2}{8}+\frac{1}{2\pi}\mathbf{G} \\ I\left( \pi \right) =&\int_0^1{\frac{\ln \left( x \right)}{1+x^2}\mathrm{arctan} \left( \frac{\pi}{\ln \left( x \right)} \right)}\mathrm{d}x=\frac{\pi ^2}{2}\ln \left( \frac{\sqrt{2}}{\pi}\Gamma ^2\left( \frac{3}{4} \right) \right) +\pi \mathbf{G} \\ I\left( \frac{3}{2}\pi \right) =&\int_0^1{\frac{\ln \left( x \right)}{1+x^2}\mathrm{arctan} \left( \frac{3\pi}{2\ln \left( x \right)} \right)}\mathrm{d}x=\frac{\pi ^2}{24}\ln \left( \frac{2^7\mathbf{A}^{36}}{\pi ^9} \right) +\frac{\pi ^2}{8}+\frac{\pi}{2}\mathbf{G} \\ I\left( 2\pi \right) =&\int_0^1{\frac{\ln \left( x \right)}{1+x^2}\mathrm{arctan} \left( \frac{2\pi}{\ln \left( x \right)} \right)}\mathrm{d}x=\frac{\pi ^2}{4}\ln \left( \frac{\Gamma ^3\left( \frac{1}{4}+1 \right) \Gamma \left( \frac{3}{4} \right) \mathrm{G}^4\left( \frac{1}{4}+1 \right) \mathrm{G}^4\left( \frac{3}{4} \right)}{\Gamma ^3\left( \frac{1}{4} \right) \Gamma \left( \frac{3}{4}+1 \right) \mathrm{G}^4\left( \frac{3}{4}+1 \right) \mathrm{G}^4\left( \frac{1}{4} \right)} \right) \\ =&\frac{\pi ^2}{4}\ln \left( \frac{1}{48}\frac{\Gamma ^3\left( \frac{1}{4} \right) \Gamma \left( \frac{3}{4} \right) \Gamma ^4\left( \frac{1}{4} \right) \mathrm{G}^4\left( \frac{1}{4} \right) \mathrm{G}^4\left( \frac{3}{4} \right)}{\Gamma ^3\left( \frac{1}{4} \right) \Gamma \left( \frac{3}{4} \right) \Gamma ^4\left( \frac{3}{4} \right) \mathrm{G}^4\left( \frac{3}{4} \right) \mathrm{G}^4\left( \frac{1}{4} \right)} \right) =\frac{\pi ^2}{4}\ln \left( \frac{1}{192\pi ^4}\Gamma ^8\left( \frac{1}{4} \right) \right) \end{align*} There would be more result if my Mathematica worked...

  • $\begingroup$ This is a nice proof, yes the steps are similar to what I did with feynman but you used several different tricks and the result is amazing! I suppose for the second one the same exact steps you did for the first one would work as well, what do you think? $\endgroup$

You could use a series expansion $$ \tan ^{-1}\left(\frac{\log (x)}{2 \pi }\right)\log (x)=\frac 1{2\pi}\Bigg(\sum_{n=1}^\infty a_n (x-1)^{2n}-\sum_{n=1}^\infty b_n (x-1)^{2n+1}\Bigg)$$ where all coefficients are positive (but very slowly decreasing) leading to the "simple" $$I=\sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{a_n}{2(2 n+1)\pi}\,\, _3F_2\left(\frac{1}{2},1,1;n+1,n+\frac{3}{2};-1\right)+$$ $$\sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{b_n}{ 4(n+1)\pi}\,\, _3F_2\left(\frac{1}{2},1,1;n+\frac{3}{2},n+2;-1\right)$$

  • $\begingroup$ But how to find $a_n$ and $b_n$? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Zima. The problem is not to get them but to find their general formulation. Cheers :-) $\endgroup$ Aug 26, 2023 at 7:15
