**Is anybody aware of how to solve the following infinite sum:**

[tex]\sum\frac{1}{n^2}[/tex] for all positive odd integers?

[tex]\sum\frac{1}{n^2}[/tex] for all positive odd integers?

Is this the sort of thing you just look up in a math table or solve?

If math table, do I need a "sum of reciprocal powers" table or a "riemann zeta function" table?

If solve - how?

I know the answer is pi^2 / 8 but I haven't a clue how to calculate that and cannot find a math table with the appropriate functions.
