Fractional Part Integral Open Problem

Find a closed form of

0101{x1x2}{x2x3}{xn1xn}{xnx1} dx1 dx2dxn;n3 \int_{0}^{1} \ldots \int_{0}^{1} \left \{ \dfrac{x_{1}}{x_{2}} \right \} \left \{\dfrac{x_{2}}{x_{3}}\right \} \ldots \left \{\dfrac{x_{n-1}}{x_{n}}\right \} \left \{\dfrac{x_{n}}{x_{1}}\right \} \ \mathrm{d}x_{1} \ \mathrm{d}x_{2} \ldots \mathrm{d}x_{n} \quad ; \quad n \geq 3

Notation : {}\{ \cdot \} denotes fractional part function.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Damn. Its looks so difficult :D it is easier to solve a rubic's cube in 1 min rather solving this problem :p

Case n=2n=2 is very simple.

i was making good progress,but i got stuck at

01x1x2x3x1dx1\displaystyle\int _{ 0 }^{ 1 }{ \left\lfloor \frac { { x }_{ 1 } }{ { x }_{ 2 } } \right\rfloor \left\lfloor \frac { { x }_{ 3 } }{ { x }_{ 1 } } \right\rfloor d{ x }_{ 1 } }

:(
