The Riemann zeta function is the function of one complex variable $s$ defined by the series $\zeta(s) = \sum_{n \geq 1} \frac{1}{n^s}$ when $\operatorname{Re}(s)>1$. It admits a meromorphic continuation to $\mathbb{C}$ with only a simple pole at $1$. This function satisfies a functional equation ...

Are all complex zeros of $Li_s(z)\, \pm \, Li_{1-s}(z)$ on the critical line or outside the critical strip for $z \le -1$?

This question loosely builds on this one, however is a bit simpler and I found the results to be more robust. It seems that all zeros in the critical strip $0 \lt \Re(s) < 1$ of: $$Li_s(z)\, \pm ...
