Reduction of the integral by Robert Israel, Jul 25 2012: (Start)
Use the definition of DedekindEta as a sum:
Eta(i x) = sum_{n=infinity}^infinity (1)^n exp(pi x (6n1)^2/12)
Now int_0^infinity exp(pi x (6n1)^2/12) dx = 12/(pi (6n1)^2)
According to Maple, sum_{n=infinity}^infinity (1)^n 12/(pi (6n1)^2) is
2*3^(1/2)*(dilog(11/2*I1/2*3^(1/2))dilog(11/2*I+1/2*3^(1/2))dilog(1+1/2*I+1/2*3^(1/2))+dilog(1+1/2*I1/2*3^(1/2)))/Pi
Jonquiere's inversion formula (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polylogarithm)
but note that Maple's dilog(z) is L_2(1z) in the notation there) gives
dilog(11/2*I1/2*3^(1/2))+dilog(1+1/2*I1/2*3^(1/2)) = 13/72*Pi^2
and
dilog(11/2*I+1/2*3^(1/2))+dilog(1+1/2*I+1/2*3^(1/2)) = 11*Pi^2/72
which give the desired multiple of Pi. (End)

FORMULA

Equals 2*Pi/sqrt(3), 2 times A093602, and in consequence equal to sum_{m>=1} 3^m/(m*binomial(2m,m)) according to Lehmer .  R. J. Mathar, Jul 24 2012
