Definite integral of $\zeta(s)$ over the critical strip

Take the following definite integral: $$f(s):=\int_s^{1-s} \zeta(x) \mathrm{d} x$$ with $s \in \mathbb{C}$, $s=\sigma \pm ti$, $0<\sigma<1$ and $t,\sigma \in \mathbb{R}$. The graph of ...

Are all zeros of ζ^{k}(s)±ζ^{k}(1−s) on the critical line (k=k-th derivative)?

The non-trivial zeros of $\zeta^{k}(s)$, with $k=k^{th}$ derivative, do not lie on a line and seem to be distributed randomly in the region $\sigma > \frac12$. However the non-real zeros in the ...

Zeros of the function $\zeta(s) \pm \zeta(\overline s)$

Building on this question: Zeros of $\zeta(s) \pm \zeta(1-s)$, I experimented further with: $$\zeta(s) \pm \zeta(\overline s)$$ Assuming $s=\sigma + ti$, I observed that this function also has many ...

Montgomery's pair correlation function without RH?

In the theory of the Riemann zeta function, Montgomery's Pair correlation function is defined as $$ F(\alpha) = \frac{1}{N(T)} \sum_{T < \gamma, \gamma' < 2T} T^{i \alpha (\gamma - \gamma')} ...

Are the 'semi' trivial zeros of $\zeta(s) \pm \zeta(1-s)$ all on the critical line?

The proof that $\Gamma(z)\pm \Gamma(1-z)$ only has zeros for $z \in \mathbb{R}$ or $z= \frac12 +i \mathbb{R}$ has been given here: Are all zeros of $\Gamma(s) \pm \Gamma(1-s)$ on a line with real ...

Is there information about the $\rho$'s hidden in the zeros of $\Re(\chi(s))$ ?

Take the symmetrical form of the completed Zeta-function: $\displaystyle \chi(s) \zeta(s) = \chi(1-s) \zeta(1-s)$ with $\chi(s)=\pi^{-(\frac{s}{2})} \Gamma(\frac{s}{2})$. For $s=\sigma + ti$, I ...

Possible locations for non trivial zeroes lying off the critical line

It has been proven that: 1) if $s$ is a non trivial zero $\rho$ of $\zeta(s)$ then so is $1−s$. 2) $\zeta(s) = 2^s \pi^{s-1} \sin(\frac{\pi s}{2}) \Gamma(1-s) \zeta(1-s)$ 3) $ 0 < \Re(\rho) ...

On Robin's criterion for RH [closed]

\begin{equation} \sigma(n) < e^\gamma n \log \log n \end{equation} In 1984 Guy Robin proved that the inequality is true for all n ≥ 5,041 if and only if the Riemann hypothesis is true (Robin ...

using distribution of primes to generate random bits?

In his popular science book The Music of the Primes, Marcus du Sautoy tries to link the truth of the Riemann Hypothesis to the "randomness" of the primes. To do this, he invokes the idea of a "fair ...

Given an integer polynomial, is there a small prime modulo which it has a root?

I am looking at a paper by Pascal Koiran on the computational complexity of certifying the solvability of integer polynomial equations in several variables. With the aid of some important theorems in ...

Which conjectures only need the Grand Riemann Hypothesis to become genuine theorems?

Hello, I've been interested in number theory for several years, and as time goes by, I read more and more articles in which theorems begin with "Assume the Riemann Hypothesis holds." But up to now, I ...

The Hardy Z-function and failure of the Riemann hypothesis

David Feldman asked whether it would be reasonable for the Riemann hypothesis to be false, but for the Riemann zeta function to only have finitely many zeros off the critical line. I very rashly ...

Modular forms and the Riemann Hypothesis

Is there any statement directly about modular forms that is equivalent to the Riemann Hypothesis for L-functions? What I'm thinking of is this: under the Mellin transform, the Riemann zeta function ...
