The question is to complete this analogy:

$$\left|Z(t)\right|=\left|\zeta \left(\frac{1}{2}+i t\right)\right| \tag{1}$$

is to:

$$Z(t)=e^{i \vartheta (t)} \zeta \left(\frac{1}{2}+i t\right) \tag{2}$$


$$\left|f(t)\right|=\left|\sum\limits_{n=1}^{n=k} \frac{1}{n} \zeta(1/2+i t)\sum\limits_{d|n}\frac{\mu(d)}{d^{(1/2+i t-1)}}\right| \tag{3}$$

is to what? $f(t) = \text{?} \tag{4}$

I am asking this because $f(t)$ divided by Riemann Siegel theta and the $k$-th Harmonic number:

$$f_{\vartheta(t)}(t)=\frac{\text{sgn} (Z(t))\left|\sum\limits_{n=1}^{n=k} \frac{1}{n} \zeta(1/2+i \cdot t)\sum\limits_{d|n}\frac{\mu(d)}{d^{(1/2+i \cdot t-1)}}\right|}{g(t)+H_{\text{k}}}$$


$$g(t)=\frac{\partial \vartheta (t)}{\partial t}$$

and where $\vartheta(t)$ is the Riemann-Siegel theta function,

has a nice plot:

Riemann zeta zeros square wave passing through the zeta zeros

The blue graph passes through the Riemann zeta zeros, like the Riemann-Siegel zeta function. However, the square wave $f(t)$ is divergent despite the appearance of the plot.

$Z(t)$ is the Riemann-Siegel zeta function.

  • $\begingroup$ $P_k(s)=\sum_{n=1}^k n^{-1} \sum_{d |n} \mu(d) d^{1-s}$ is a Dirichlet polynomial with real coefficients so $P_k(s) e^{-i h_k(s)/2}$ is real for $\Re(s) = 1/2$ where $h_k(s) = \log P_k(s) -\log P_k(1-s)$ is analytic on $\Re(s) = 1/2$. $\endgroup$ – reuns Nov 17 '18 at 10:49
