Another integral similar to my previous question: $$\int_0^\infty\frac{\ln\left(\sqrt{x+1\vphantom{x^0}}-1\right)\,\ln\left(\sqrt{x^{-1}+1}+1\right)}{(x+1)^{3/2}}dx$$ Could you suggets how to evaluate it? Is there a closed form?

    $\begingroup$ On another forum, a very similar integral has been evaluated: See here .Your integral can be calculated using the same technique. $\endgroup$ – Shobhit Bhatnagar Feb 3 '14 at 11:30

Yes, there is a closed form: $$\frac{\pi^2}3-\ln^22-4\,G,$$ where $G$ is the Catalan constant: $$G=-\int_0^1\frac{\ln x}{x^2+1}dx.$$
