COMMENTS

Because the integral from u=0 up to u=Pi/2 equals log(2)*Pi/2 = A086054/2, this is also the x such that Integral_{u=Pi/2..Pi*x} u*cot(u) du = log(2)*Pi/2. By partial integration, Integral_{u} u*cot(u) du = u*log(sin(u))  Integral_{u} log(sin(u)) du, used with a Newton method in the Maple implementation.
