# Derivative of the Riemann zeta function for $Re(s)>0$.

The Riemann zeta function can be analytically continued to $Re(s)>0$ by the infinite sum $$\zeta(s)=\frac{1}{1-2^{1-s}}\sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{(-1)^{n-1}}{n^s}.$$ Can we differentiate this with respect to $s$ to obtain the derivate $\zeta'(s)$ for $Re(s)>0$ ?

Assuming the sum satisfies the Cauchy-Riemann equations, I've arrived at the following:

$$\zeta'(s) = \sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{((-1)^n2^sn^{-s}(\log(4)+(2^s-2)\log(n))}{(2^s-2)^2},$$

but is this still valid for $Re(s)>0$ ?

Yes because $$\frac{1}{1-2^{1-s}}\sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{(-1)^{n-1}}{n^s}$$ is meromorphic on the half plane $s>0$ with a pole at $s=1$. Note that since you have a pole at $s=1$, neither formula is valid at $s=1$, so it should be the punctured half plane $s>0$ with the point $s=1$ removed.
