DirichletEta

DirichletEta[s]

gives the Dirichlet eta function TemplateBox[{s}, DirichletEta].

Details

  • The Dirichlet eta function is also known as the alternating zeta function.
  • DirichletEta is a mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numeric manipulation.
  • For , the Dirichlet eta function is defined as TemplateBox[{s}, DirichletEta]=sum_(n=0)^infty((-1)^n)/((n+1)^s).
  • For certain special arguments, DirichletEta automatically evaluates to exact values.
  • DirichletEta is an entire function with branch cut discontinuities.
  • DirichletEta can be evaluated to arbitrary numerical precision.
  • DirichletEta automatically threads over lists.
  • DirichletEta can be used with Interval and CenteredInterval objects. »
