Gourdon and Sebahp. Conway and Havl are “prepared to bet that it is transcendental,” although they do not expect a proof to be achieved within their lifetimes. The so-called xi-function defined by Riemann has precisely the same zeros as the nontrivial zeros of with the additional benefit that is entire and is purely real and so are simpler to locate.
Cambridge University Press, It is also equal to the constant from Li’s criterion. Mon Dec 31 VaccaGerstwhere lg is the logarithm to base 2 and is the floor function.

Another connection with the primes was provided by Dirichlet’s proof that the average number of divisors of all numbers from 1 to is asymptotic to. Ticino, Italy, and Monthly 76, Integrals that give in combination with other simple constants include.

To see the equivalence, expand in a geometric seriesmultiply byand integrate termwise Sondow and Zudilin Both these formulas are also analogous to the product for given by.

The position of the complex zeros can be seen slightly havi easily by plotting the contours of zero real red and imaginary blue parts, as illustrated above. Monthly, By taking the logarithm of both sides, an explicit formula for is obtained.

Mon Dec 31 This gives an efficient iterative algorithm for by computing. So-called “trivial zeros” occur at all negative even integers,The cases and give. Finally, Dusart showed that holds for all Havilp. Nombres Bordeaux 8, Numerical evidence suggests that all values of corresponding to nontrivial zeros are irrational e. Hilbert mentioned the irrationality of as an 0203 problem that seems “unapproachable” and in front of which mathematicians stand helpless Havilp.
