### Proving an alternating Euler sum: $\sum_{k=1}^{\infty} \frac{(-1)^{k+1} H_k}{k} = \frac{1}{2} \zeta(2) - \frac{1}{2} \log^2 2$

Let $$A(p,q) = \sum_{k=1}^{\infty} \frac{(-1)^{k+1}H^{(p)}_k}{k^q},$$ where $H^{(p)}_n = \sum_{i=1}^n i^{-p}$, the $n$th $p$-harmonic number. The $A(p,q)$'s are known as alternating Euler sums. ...

### Strategies For Summing Harmonic Numbers

Lately, I have found several interesting problems involving Harmonic numbers such as \begin{equation*}\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{H_n^{(2)}}{n^2}=\frac{7\pi^4}{360}\end{equation*} I am not familiar with ...

### Evaluating $\int_0^1 \frac{\ln^m (1+x)\ln^n x}{x}\; dx$ for $m,n\in\mathbb{N}$

Evaluate $\displaystyle \int\limits_0^1 \dfrac{\ln^m (1+x)\ln^n x}{x}\; dx$ for $m,n\in\mathbb{N}$ I was wondering if the above had some kind of a closed form, here some of the special cases have ...
