Computes Riemann's zeta function and its first two derivatives. Also can computes Hurwitz's zeta function.
1 
x 
A complexvalued vector/matrix whose real values must be
>= 1. Otherwise, if 
deriv 
An integer equalling 0 or 1 or 2, which is the order of the derivative. The default means it is computed ordinarily. 
shift 
Positive and numeric, called A below. Allows for the Hurwitz zeta to be returned. The default corresponds to the Riemann formula. 
The (Riemann) formula for real s is
sum_{n=1}^Inf 1 / n^s.
While the usual definition involves an infinite series that converges when the real part of the argument is > 1, more efficient methods have been devised to compute the value. In particular, this function uses EulerMaclaurin summation. Theoretically, the zeta function can be computed over the whole complex plane because of analytic continuation.
The (Riemann) formula used here for analytic continuation is
zeta(s) = 2^s * pi^(s1) * sin(pi*s/2) * gamma(1s) * zeta(1s).
This is actually one of several formulas, but this one was discovered by Riemann himself and is called the functional equation.
The Hurwitz zeta function for real 0 < s is
sum_{n=0}^Inf 1 / (A + n)^s.
where 0 < A is known here as the shift
.
Since A=1 by default, this function will therefore return
Riemann's zeta function by default.
Currently derivatives are unavailable.
The default is a vector/matrix of computed values of Riemann's zeta
function.
If shift
contains values not equal to 1, then this is
Hurwitz's zeta function.
This function has not been fully tested, especially the derivatives.
In particular, analytic continuation does not work here for
complex x
with Re(x)<1
because currently the
gamma
function does not handle complex
arguments.
Estimation of the parameter of the zeta distribution can
be achieved with zetaff
