# Questions tagged [zeta-functions]

Zeta functions are typically analogues or generalizations of the Riemann zeta function. Examples include Dedekind zeta functions of number fields, and zeta functions of varieties over finite fields. They are typically initially defined as formal generating functions, but often admit analytic continuations.

### Schemes with common zeta function

If $S_\zeta$ is the set of all separated schemes of finite type over $\mathbb{Z}$ that have the same arithmetic zeta function $\zeta$, what more can we say about $S_\zeta$ assuming it is non-empty?

### Riemann-Siegel formula for Dirichlet characters

After unearthing and giving a proof of what is now known as the Riemann--Siegel formula for the Riemann zeta function enabling the computation of $\zeta(1/2+iT)$ in time $O(T^{1/2})$, in 1943 Siegel ...

### On integral relating logarithmic of absolute value of Zeta function:

Sorry for such a direct question: Consider the following integral: $$I(t)=\int_{1/2}^{1} {\log|\zeta(a+it)|}da$$ How to find the nature of $I(t)$ as $t\rightarrow\infty$?

### Value of $\zeta(3/2)$?

Is anything known about the value of $$\zeta(3/2)=\sum_{n\geq 1}\frac{1}{n^{3/2}}?$$ It is a classical result that $\displaystyle \zeta(2)= \frac{\pi^2}{6}$ and $\zeta(3)$ has been shown to be ...

### Are there any zeta functions with concurrent derivative shifts in multiple variables?

Expressions for rational zeta series have been obtained by considering the Taylor series of zeta functions. For instance, one has \begin{align}\zeta(s,x+y) &= \sum_{k=0}^{\infty} \frac{y^{k}}{k!} \...
