Clearly I am missing something obvious here, but how is it that negative even numbers are zeros of the Riemann zeta function?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For example:

[tex]\zeta (-2)=1+\frac{1}{2^{-2}}+\frac{1}{3^{-2}}+...=1+4+9+..[/tex]

Which is clearly not zero. What is it that I am doing wrong?
