The paper deals with a generalization of Rivoal's construction, which enables one to construct linear approximating forms in 1 and the values of the zeta function ζ(s) only at odd points. We prove theorems on the irrationality of the number ζ(s) for some odd integers s in a given segment of the set of positive integers. Using certain refined arithmetical estimates, we strengthen Rivoal's original results on the linear independence of the ζ(s).

New formulas for approximation of zeta-constants were derived on the basis of a number-theoretic approach constructed for the irrationality proof of certain classical constants. Using these formulasExpand
