### An integral that might be related to the modified Bessel function of second kind

It is known that the modified Bessel Function $K_z(a)$ ($a>0$)can be expressed as a Fourier transform $$K_z(a)=\frac{1}{2}\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}\exp(-a\cosh t)\cosh(zt){\rm d}t=K_{-z}(a)$$ Can ...

### Zeta function for negative integers

I already proved that $\zeta(z)=\frac{1}{\Gamma(z)}\int_0^\infty\frac{t^{z-1}}{e^t-1}dt=\frac{\Gamma(z-1)}{2\pi i}\int_{-\infty}^0\frac{t^{z-1}}{e^{-t}-1}dt$ Now the Benoulli numbers are defined by ...

### Is this formula for $\sum_{n} (n^{2}+z^{2})^{-s}$ correct?

I would like to know if this formula is true: $$\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{1}{(z^{2}+n^{2})^s}=\frac{1}{\Gamma(s)} \sum_{n=0}^{\infty}\Gamma(s+n)\zeta(2s+2n)\frac{ (-z^2)^n}{n!}.$$ I have used the ...
