COMMENTS

The function f(p) = Integral_{x = 2..infinity} 1/(x*log(x)^p) has a minimum of -e*log(log(2)) = 0.996285... at p = 1 - 1/log(log(2)) = 3.728416... - Jean-François Alcover, May 24 2013

log(log(2)) also equals the median of the Gumbel distribution with location parameter 0 and scale parameter 1. - Jean-François Alcover, Jul 29 2014

FORMULA

Equals Sum_{n>=1} ((-1)^n/(n*n!) * (Sum_{k=1..n} abs(S1(n,k))/(k+1))), where S1(n,k) are the Stirling numbers of the first kind (Blagouchine, 2016). Without the absolute value the formula gives -gamma (= -A001620). - Amiram Eldar, Jun 12 2021
