$$\mathrm{Li}_2(z) + \mathrm{Li}_2 \left(\frac{z}{z-1} \right) = – \frac{1}{2} \log^2 (1-z) \,\,\,\, \, z<1$$ $$\textit{proof}$$ Start by the following $$\mathrm{Li}_2 \left(\frac{z}{z-1} \right) = -\int^{\frac{z}{z-1}}_0 \frac{ \log(1-t)}{t}\, dt$$ Differentiate both sides with respect to $z$ $$\frac{d}{dz}\mathrm{Li}_2 \left(\frac{z}{z-1} \right) = \frac{1}{(z-1)^2}\left( \frac{ \log … Continue reading Posted in Dilogarithm, Polylogarithm | Tagged , , , | 1 Comment ## Dilogarithm functional equation proof$$\mathrm{Li}_2(z) + \mathrm{Li}_{2}(1-z) = \frac{\pi^2}{6}-\log(z) \log(1-z) \,\,\,\, ,\,0<z<1\textit{proof}$$Start by the following$$\mathrm{Li}_2\left(z\right) = -\int^{z}_0 \frac{\log(1-t)}{t} \, dt $$Now integrate by parts to obtain$$\mathrm{Li}_2\left(z\right)= -\int^z_0 \frac{\log(t)}{1-t} \, dt -\log(z) \log(1-z)  By the change of variable \(t=1-x … Continue reading
