Abstract The Stieltjes constants γ k ( a ) are the expansion coefficients in the Laurent series for the Hurwitz zeta function about s = 1 . We present new asymptotic, summatory, and other exact expressions for these and related constants. 
A New Effective Asymptotic Formula for the Stieltjes Constants

Let (γn)n ≥ 0 be the sequence of Stieltjes constants appearing in the Laurent expansion of the Riemann zeta function. We obtain explicit upper bounds for |γn|, whose order of magnitude is as n tendsExpand
The difference between two Stieltjes constants
The Stieltjes constants are the coefficients of the Laurent expansion of the Hurwitz zeta function and surprisingly little is known about them. In this paper we derive some relations for theExpand

An effective asymptotic formula for the Stieltjes constants
An asymptotic expression for γ k for k >> 1 is presented, which encapsulates both the leading rate of growth and the oscillations with k, and is effective for computation. Expand
An asymptotic form for the Stieltjes constants gammak(a) and for a sum Sgamma(n) appearing under the Li criterion
Asymptotic results for the Laguerre polynomials Lαn are used to investigate a certain sum Sγ(n) involving the constants γk(1) that appears in application of the Li criterion for the Riemann hypothesis. Expand

Zeta Values and Differential Operators on the Circle

Analytic continuation of Riemann’s zeta function and values at negative integers via Euler’s transformation of series
We prove that a series derived using Euler's transformation provides the analytic continuation of ζ(s) for all complex s ¬= 1. At negative integers the series becomes a finite sum whose value isExpand

Newton-Cotes integration for approximating Stieltjes (generalized Euler) constants
The numerical method uses Newton-Cotes integration formulae for very high-degree interpolating polynomials; it differs in implementation from, but compares in error bounding to, Euler-Maclaurin summation based methods. Expand
