# A parametric logarithmic integral

Let . Prove that

Solution

We are basing the whole solution on the Beta function and its derivative. We recall that

(1)

Setting and back at we get that

Differentiating with respect to we get that

where we made use of the reflection formulae of both the Gamma and the digamma function; and .

Now for our integral we have successively:
