A solution given by akotronis : Let $\displaystyle{S_{n}:=\sum_{k=1}^{n}(1)^k\frac{\ln k}{k}}$. First observe that, by Dirichlet's criterion, the series converges, because $(1)^k$ has bounded partial sums and $\displaystyle{\frac{\ln k}{k}}$ is eventually decreasing to $0$. Therefore $$\displaysty...

A solution by Seraphim We note that $$\zeta(m)  {\rm Li}_m(x)= \sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{1x^n}{n^m}$$ Therefore \begin{align*} S &= \int_{0}^{1}\frac{\zeta(m){\rm Li}_m (x)}{1x} \log^{m1} x \, {\rm d}x \\ &= \sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{1}{n^m} \int_{0}^{1}\frac{1x^n}{1x} \log^{m1} x \...

Replied exmember by aziiri : Set \(e^x1=t^2\) then : \[I=\int_0^{\infty} \frac{x}{\sqrt{e^x1}} \ \mathrm{d}x= \int_0^{\infty} \frac{2\ln(t^2+1)}{t^2+1} \ \mathrm{d}t\] Now set \(t=\tan y\) to get : \[I= 4\int_0^{\frac{\pi}{2}} \ln \cos y\ \mathrm{d}y\] The latter integral is widely known to be ...

Replied by exmember aziiri : A possible first step is to use Lagrange's trigonometric identity: \begin{align*} \mathop{\sum}\limits_{k=1}^n {\sin(kx)}&=\frac{1}{2}\frac{\cos\frac{x}{2}\cos\bigl({\bigl({n +\frac{1}{2}}\bigr) x}\bigr)}{\sin\frac{x}{2}}\\ &=........................\\ &=\...

Replied by exmember aziiri : \(1<a_n<2\) : we have \(1<a_1<2\). Suppose \(1<a_n<2\) then \(1<{\sqrt{2}\,}^{1}<a_{n+1}={\sqrt{2}\,}^{a_n}<{\sqrt{2}\,}^2=2\). \((a_n)_{n\geq 0} \) is increases. On \([1,2)\) define \(f(x)={\sqrt{2}\,}^xx\) then \(f'(x)= 2^{x/21} \ln 2 1 \leq f'(2)=\ln 2 1 <0\) th...
