    For the inner integral, substitute u=xy,

    \int_0^1 {\int_0^1 {\frac{{dx\,dy}}<br />
{{\Big[ { - \ln (xy)} \Big]^{3/2} }}} } = \int_0^1 {\int_0^y {\frac{{du\,dy}}<br />
{{y\left( { - \ln u} \right)^{3/2} }}} } = \int_0^1 {\int_u^1 {\frac{{dy\,du}}<br />
{{y\left( { - \ln u} \right)^{3/2} }}} } .

    So

    \int_0^1 {\int_0^1 {\frac{{dx\,dy}}<br />
{{\Big[ { - \ln (xy)} \Big]^{3/2} }}} } = \int_0^1 {\frac{{ - \ln u}}<br />
{{\left( { - \ln u} \right)^{3/2} }}\,du} = \int_0^1 {\frac{1}<br />
{{\sqrt { - \ln u} }}\,du} = \sqrt \pi .

    i don't think it works because that function is not defined for all x and y in [0,1].

    for exaomple when x=y=1 we have

    \frac{1}{(\log{1})^{\frac{3}{2}}}

     = \frac{1}{0}

    It is okay to do this. It is an improper integral.
