What is ... a partial zeta function?

This page hosts information on Miguel Grados' talk "What is ... a partial zeta function?" at the "What is ...?" seminar. The talk will take place on Friday, May 23, 1:15pm at HU, RUD 26 0'311. This talk will help you better understand the talk by Alina Marian, which will start at 2pm.


Zeta functions are ubiquitous in number theory and usually its residue at s=1 contains relevant information of the problem in question. This talk is two-fold. First, we introduce two variants of the Riemann zeta function: one that appears in practice, and the other that is good for theoretical purposes. Second, we show an identity between these two variants and its consequences.
