They claim that the trivial 0s (zeta(z)=0) occur when z is a negative odd integer (with no imaginary component). But it seems obviously wrong.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Take z=-2

zeta(-2)=1+1/(2^-2)+1/(3^-2)....

=1+4+9....

Obviously this series will not equal 0.

Where have I gone wrong?

Have I misunderstood the meaning of 'zeros of the zeta function'?
