In recent years much attention has been given to Newton series representations of a regularized Zeta function. Such representations are limited as they do not lead to a series expansion for the Zeta

Lindelöf Representations and (Non-)Holonomic Sequences

Various sequences that possess explicit analytic expressions can be analysed asymptotically through integral representations due to Lindel\"of, which belong to an attractive but somewhat neglected

Acceleration Methods for Series: A Probabilistic Perspective

We introduce a probabilistic perspective to the problem of accelerating the convergence of a wide class of series, paying special attention to the computation of the coefficients, preferably in a

Differential calculus for linear operators represented by finite signed measures and applications

We introduce a differential calculus for linear operators represented by a family of finite signed measures. Such a calculus is based on the notions of g-derived operators and processes and



The Theory of the Riemann Zeta-Function

The Riemann zeta-function embodies both additive and multiplicative structures in a single function, making it our most important tool in the study of prime numbers. This volume studies all aspects

A rigorous proof is given of the hypergeometric-like representation of the Riemann zeta function 𝜁(𝑠) discovered by Maslanka as a series of Pochhamer polynomials with coefficients depending on the

Sharpenings of Li's Criterion for the Riemann Hypothesis

Exact and asymptotic formulae are displayed for the coefficients λn used in Li's criterion for the Riemann Hypothesis. For n → ∞ we obtain that if (and only if) the Hypothesis is true, λn ∼ n(A log n

Toward Verification of the Riemann Hypothesis: Application of the Li Criterion

We substantially apply the Li criterion for the Riemann hypothesis to hold. Based upon a series representation for the sequence {λk}, which are certain logarithmic derivatives of the Riemann xi

Complements to Li's Criterion for the Riemann Hypothesis☆

Abstract In a recent paper Xian-Jin Li showed that the Riemann Hypothesis holds if and only ifλn=∑ρ [1−(1−1/ρ)n] hasλn>0 forn=1, 2, 3, … whereρruns over the complex zeros of the Riemann zeta

Continued Fractions, Comparison Algorithms, and Fine Structure Constants

A light tour of dynamical systems (symbolic dynamics), number theory (continued fractions), special functions, special functions (multiple zeta values), functional analysis (transfer operators), numerical analysis (series acceleration), and complex analysis (the Riemann hypothesis) contribute to a detailed characterization of the complexity of comparison and sorting algorithms.

Hypergeometric-like Representation of the Zeta-Function of Riemann

We present a new expansion of the zeta-function of Riemann. The current formalism -- which combines both the idea of interpolation with constraints and the concept of hypergeometric functions -- can,

The Positivity of a Sequence of Numbers and the Riemann Hypothesis

Abstract In this note, we prove that the Riemann hypothesis for the Dedekind zeta function is equivalent to the nonnegativity of a sequence of real numbers.
