This paper deals with certain multiple integrals which can be represented as linear forms of zeta values with rational coefficients.

Multiple integrals and linear forms in zeta-values
We deflne n-dimensional Beukers-type integrals over the unit hypercube. Using an n-dimensional birational transformation we show that such integrals are equal to suita- ble n-dimensional Sorokin-type
Integral identities and constructions of approximations to zeta-values
Nous presentons une construction generale de combinaisons lineaires a coefficients rationnels en les valeurs de la fonction zeta de Riemann aux entiers. Ces formes lineaires sont exprimees en termes
An identity of Andrews, multiple integrals, and very-well-poised hypergeometric series
We give a new proof of a theorem of Zudilin that equates a very-well-poised hypergeometric series and a particular multiple integral. This integral generalizes integrals of Vasilenko and Vasilyev
Arithmetic of linear forms involving odd zeta values
The story exposed in this paper starts in 1978, when R. Apery [Ap] gave a surprising sequence of exercises demonstrating the irrationality of ζ(2) and ζ(3). (For a nice explanation of Apery’s
A few remarks on ζ(3)
A new proof of the irrationality of the number ζ(3) is proposed. A new decomposition of this number into a continued fraction is found. Recurrence relations are proved for some sequences of
Phénomènes de symétrie dans des formes linéaires en polyzêtas
Abstract We give two generalizations, in arbitrary depth, of the symmetry phenomenon used by Ball-Rivoal to prove that infinitely many values of Riemann ζ function at odd integers are irrational.
S\'eries hyperg\'eom\'etriques multiples et polyz\^etas
We describe a theoretical and effective algorithm which enables us to prove that rather general hypergeometric series and integrals can be decomposed as linear combinations of multiple zeta values,
Multiple series connected to Hoffman's conjecture on multiple zeta values
Abstract Recent results of Zlobin and Cresson–Fischler–Rivoal allow one to decompose any suitable p-uple series of hypergeometric type into a linear combination (over the rationals) of multiple zeta
A Note on the Irrationality of ζ(2) and ζ(3)
At the “Journees Arithmetiques” held at Marseille-Luminy in June 1978, R. Apery confronted his audience with a miraculous proof for the irrationality of ζ(3) = l-3+ 2-3+ 3-3 + .... The proof was
La fonction zêta de Riemann prend une infinité de valeurs irrationnelles aux entiers impairs
Resume Nous montrons que la dimension de l'espace vectoriel engendre sur les rationnels par 1 et les n premieres valeurs de la fonction zeta de Riemann aux entiers impairs croit au moins comme un
