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 (6n-1)^2/12)

Now int_0^infinity exp(-pi x (6n-1)^2/12) dx = 12/(pi (6n-1)^2)

According to Maple, sum_{n=-infinity}^infinity (-1)^n 12/(pi (6n-1)^2) is

2*3^(1/2)*(dilog(1-1/2*I-1/2*3^(1/2))-dilog(1-1/2*I+1/2*3^(1/2))-dilog(1+1/2*I+1/2*3^(1/2))+dilog(1+1/2*I-1/2*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(1-z) in the notation there) gives

dilog(1-1/2*I-1/2*3^(1/2))+dilog(1+1/2*I-1/2*3^(1/2)) = 13/72*Pi^2

and

dilog(1-1/2*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

Also equals Gamma(1/3)*Gamma(2/3) - Jean-François Alcover, Nov 24 2014
