Description (last modified by )
From google spreadsheet which no one reads X-(
sage: integrate(log(1+x)/x,x) log(x + 1)*log(-x) + polylog(2, x + 1) sage: integrate(log(1+x)/x,x,0,1) -1/6*pi^2 + I*pi*log(2) + polylog(2, 2)
Since dilog(2) = -pi^2/4+log(2)^2/2-1/2*(log(2)+I*pi)^2
the result is simply pi^2/12
.

For completeness, sympy has
In [1]: integrate(log(1+x)/x) Out[1]: ⎛ ⅈ⋅π⎞ -polylog⎝2, x⋅ℯ ⎠ In [2]: integrate(log(1+x)/x,(x,0,1)) Out[2]: ⎛ ⅈ⋅π⎞ -polylog⎝2, ℯ ⎠
while Wolfram says integral (log(1+x))/x dx = -Li_2(-x)+constant
.
The sympy solution will also only be available with sympy-0.7.8 because of a missing polylog._sage_
method in earlier versions.

sage: integrate(log(1+x)/x,x,algorithm='sympy') -polylog(2, -x)

If this answer is wrong, mark it for a stopgap or even create one

as of v8.0.beta3, Maxima is correct:
sage: integrate(log(1+x)/x, x, 0, 1, algorithm='maxima') -1/6*pi^2 + I*pi*log(2) + dilog(2) sage: _.n() 0.822467033424113 sage: N(pi^2/12) 0.822467033424113
see W|A
the imaginary part vanishes because of the identity dilog(2) = -pi^2/4+log(2)^2/2-1/2*(log(2)+I*pi)^2
, which doesn't seem to be recognised.

- Description modified (diff)
- Summary changed from Possible integration error to Missing dilog(2) simplification
- Type changed from defect to enhancement
So I think we can at least relabel this. As the answer is correct it becomes a mere enhancement ticket.

Replying to kcrisman:
What does
giac
do, out of curiosity?
- giac returns unevaluated
- sympy returns the correct + reduced answer
.. it's quite fun. in that list in github i started to evaluate the integral tickets with different algorithms.
Apparently in Maxima.
