I don't know anything of complex analysis or analytic number theory or analytic continuation. But i read about zeta function and riemann hypothesis over wikipedia, clay institute's website and few other sources. I started with original zeta function(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

and then for complex s of form a+ib, where a and b are real,it would be

Then i did few things and it became,

It can be observed that above relation is actually,

and if reimann hypothesis is true, first term diverges in above equation, which would in turn mean second term must tend to -∞.

Now my questions are:

1)Am i on right path? I have plans to start real and complex analysis soon. Would above progress be useful?

2)Has anyone around got any idea of proving second term tending to -∞ without assuming riemann hypothesis true? Won't this method help prove reimann hypothesis true? As far as i understand, all solutions of above zeta function satisfies riemann zeta function(one of analytic continuation).

If i talked nonsense above, please rectify me.
