### Moebius / Zeta function connections

Following on from this question, I include a plot of the slightly less clear, but far simpler mathematically Mertens function against $x$ to the power of Zeta Zero 1, where the correlation between the ...

### coefficients of the zeta function of curve over a finite field $\mathbb{F}_q$

Let $C$ be a non-singular curve over $\mathbb{F}_q$. Denote by $d$ the degree map from the group of divisors to $\mathbb{Z}$ and denote by $P$ the set of prime divisors w.r.t. to the function field. ...

### Finding zeta function of an elliptic curve

Let p=3 (mod 4) be a prime, and $E/F_{p^r}$ be the elliptic curve given by $y^2 = x^3 − x$ Find the zeta-function of $E/F_p$ and use it to determine $|E(F_{p^r} )|$ for all r>0.

### Calulate a limit involving $\zeta{(\zeta{(z)})}$

I'm currently trying to evaluate the following limit: $$\lambda=\lim_{z\to\infty}{\left[2^z-\left(\frac{4}{3}\right)^z-\zeta{(\zeta{(z)})}\right]}$$ A look at numerical approximations suggests, that ...

### Hint on a limit that involves the Hurwitz Zeta function

I will be honest. Some play with a weird integral has gotten me to this formulation: $$\lim\limits_{n\mathop\to\infty}\frac{\zeta(2,n)}{\frac 1n+\frac 1{2n^2}}=1$$ It seems true because of the ...

### Periodic Zeta Function Functional Equation

Recall that the periodic zeta function has the Dirichlet series $$F(\lambda,s)= \sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{e^{2\pi i n\lambda}}{n^s}.$$ This defines an analytic function for $\Re s>0$ and has a ...

### The multiplication formula for the Hurwitz/generalized Riemann zeta function

I'm having a difficult time showing that $$\displaystyle \zeta(s,mz) = \frac{1}{m^{s}} \sum_{k=0}^{m-1} \zeta \left(s,z+\frac{k}{m} \right)$$ A couple of authors referred to it as an obvious fact. ...

### On the Hurwitz Zeta Function

In my mathematics course in Uni. (I'm a physics student) my prof. gave us the following exercise: to express the Hurwitz Zeta function $\zeta(2k+1,\frac{1}{4})$ with $k=1,2,3,\dots$ in terms of the ...

### Closed form of the series $\sum\frac{\ln(n)}{n^a}$

I want to know if there exists, and how to arrive at, a closed form of this infinite sum: $$S_a=\sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{\ln(n)}{n^a}$$ I know the series converges at least for every $a>1$ by the ...

### Extending the zeta function to semiprimes, etc.

The Riemann Zeta function is defined for $s > 1$ as \begin{align} &\prod _{n=1}^{\infty}\dfrac{1}{1 -\ p_{n}^{\ \ -s}}\\ \end{align} It is possible to extend the zeta function to semiprimes ...

### Calculating zeta functions over a field

I am learning about zeta functions and have been trying the following example: Calculate the zata function of $x_0x_1-x_2x_3$ over $\mathbb{F}_p$. Does there exist an easy formula for calculating $N_s$...

### Concerning Hurwitz Zeta function, how to prove the following identity?

It is claimed that $$\zeta'(0,s)=\ln\left(\frac{\Gamma(s)}{\sqrt{2\pi}}\right)$$ where the derivative is meant by the first argument (as usual with Hurwitz Zeta). How to prove this? Wolfram Alpha ...
