We derive new functional equations for Nielsen polylogarithms. We show that, when viewed modulo $\mathrm{Li}_5$ and products of lower weight functions, the weight $5$ Nielsen polylogarithm $S_{3,2}$ satisfies the dilogarithm five-term relation. We also give some functional equations and evaluations for Nielsen polylogarithms in weights up to 8, and general families of identities in higher weight. 

Explicit formulas for Grassmannian polylogarithms

We give a new explicit formula for Grassmannian polylogarithms in terms of iterated integrals. We also explicitly reduce the Grassmannian polylogarithm in weight 4 and in weight 5 each to depth 2.

Clean Single-Valued Polylogarithms

We define a variant of real-analytic polylogarithms that are single-valued and that satisfy ''clean'' functional relations that do not involve any products of lower weight functions. We discuss the

On the Goncharov depth conjecture and a formula for volumes of orthoschemes

We prove a conjecture of Goncharov, which says that any multiple polylogarithm can be expressed via polylogarithms of depth at most half of the weight. We give an explicit formula for this

Relations for Nielsen polylogarithms

Functional equations for higher logarithms

AbstractFollowing earlier work by Abel and others, Kummer gave in 1840 functional equations for the polylogarithm function Lim (z) up to m = 5, but no example for larger m was known until

On Nielsen's generalized polylogarithms and their numerical calculation

The generalized polylogarithms of Nielsen are studied, in particular their functional relations. New integral expressions are obtained, and relations for function values of particular arguments are

Functional equations and ladders for polylogarithms.

We give a number of S3-symmetric functional equations for polylogarithms up to weight 7. This allows one to obtain the first proven ladder relations, a la Lewin, of weight 6 and 7.

Multiple polylogarithms in weight 4

We clarify the relationship between different multiple polylogarithms in weight~4 by writing suitable linear combinations of a given type of iterated integral I_{n_1,...,n_d}(z_1,...,z_d), in depth

Identities arising from coproducts on multiple zeta values and multiple polylogarithms

In this thesis we explore identities which can be proven on multiple zeta values using the derivation operators $ D_r $ from Brown's motivic MZV framework. We then explore identities which occur on

Multiple polylogarithms and mixed Tate motives

We develop the theory of multiple polylogarithms from analytic, Hodge and motivic point of view. Define the category of mixed Tate motives over a ring of integers in a number field. Describe

From polygons and symbols to polylogarithmic functions

A recipe is given for how to obtain the symbol of a multiple polylogarithm in terms of the combinatorial properties of an associated rooted decorated polygon, and it is indicated how that recipe relates to a similar explicit formula for it previously given by Goncharov.
