Well since mathematica isn't able to find a formula for n=2, I'm going to say "numerically".

What do you mean exactly by "numerically"? Do you mean that i should evaluate it as a definite integral?Well since mathematica isn't able to find a formula for n=2, I'm going to say "numerically".

[tex]\int[/tex]-log[-log[x]]dx=Euler Constant (.577...)

This follows from differentionation the gamma function in its product and integral forms and making a change of variables.

Although this method would be painful, since I cannot express this integral in terms of elementary functions, could I represent (ln ln x)^(n) as a Taylor polynomial (what is the Taylor series for ln ln x, anyways?) and then integrate that and leave it as a Taylor Series?
