COMMENTS

Convergence of this sum is slow, but (1 - log(k)/k)^(2*k) can be expanded as 1/k^2 - log(k)^2/k^3 + (-4*log(k)^3 + 3*log(k)^4)/(6*k^4) + (-3*log(k)^4 + 4*log(k)^5 - log(k)^6)/(6*k^5) + ... and each of these summands can be evaluated exactly because Sum_{k>=1} log(k)^r/k^s is equal to the r-th derivative of zeta(s) * (-1)^r. For example, Sum_{k>=1} log(k)^2/k^3 = zeta''(3).
