# Inverse Tangent Integral

The inverse tangent integral is defined in terms of the dilogarithm by

 (1)

(Lewin 1958, p. 33). It has the series

 (2)

and gives in closed form the sum

 (3)

that was considered by Ramanujan (Lewin 1958, p. 39). The inverse tangent integral can be expressed in terms of the dilogarithm as

 (4)

in terms of Legendre's chi-function as

 (5)

in terms of the Lerch transcendent by

 (6)

and as the integral

 (7)

has derivative

 (8)

It satisfies the identities

 (9)

where

 (10)

is the generalized inverse tangent function.

has the special value

 (11)

where is Catalan's constant, and the functional relationships

 (12)

the two equivalent identities

 (13)
 (14)

and

 (15)

(Lewin 1958, p. 39). The triplication formula is given by

 (16)

which leads to

 (17)

and the algebraic form

 (18)

(Lewin 1958, p. 41).
