Decreasing Combinations of Stieltjes Coefficients

I have noticed that if we take the Laurent expansion of the Riemann zeta function about $s=1$ $$ \zeta(s) = \frac{1}{s-1} + \sum_{n=0}^\infty \frac{(-1)^n}{n!}\gamma_n (s-1)^n $$ which defines $\...

What is the sign of the generalized Stieltjes constants $\gamma_{k}(a)$?

Recall that the Stieltjes constants $\gamma_{k}$ appear as the coefficients in the regular part of the Laurent expansion of the Riemann zeta function about $s = 1$: $$ \begin{align} \zeta(s) = \frac{...
