## Main Question or Discussion Point

What does the equation ζ(−1) = −1/12 represent precisely?

It's impossible for that to be the sum of all natural numbers. And it is also mentioned in all the maths articles that the 'equal to' in the equation should not be understood in a traditional way.

If so, then why wikipedia article states that,

1+2+3+.... = - 1/12
