The Mahler measure of a polynomial of several variables has been a subject of much study over the past thirty years. Very few closed forms are proven but more are conjectured. We provide systematic evaluations of various higher and multiple Mahler measures using log-sine integrals. We also explore related generating functions for the log-sine integrals. This work makes frequent use of “The Handbook” and involves extensive symbolic computations.
