A formula for ζ(2n + 1) and some related expressions

Abstract : Using a polylogarithmic identity, we express the values of $\zeta$ at odd integers $2n+1$ as integrals over unit $n-$dimensional hypercubes of simple functions involving products of logarithms. We also prove a useful property of those functions as some of their variables are raised to a power. In the case $n=2$, we prove two closed-form expressions concerning related integrals. Finally, another family of related one-dimensional integrals is studied.
