Riemann Zeta Function

Share:

Description

Riemann's zeta function valid in the entire complex plane.

Usage

1
zeta(z)

Arguments

z

Real or complex number or a numeric or complex vector.

Details

Computes the zeta function for complex arguments using a series expansion for Dirichlet's eta function.

Accuracy is about 13 significant digits for abs(z)<100, drops off with higher absolute values.

Value

Returns a complex vector of function values.
