### Riemann zeta function and Harmonic number

A result due to Euler

Hence, we have

### Re: Riemann zeta function and Harmonic number

Hello gAr;

Very nice!

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Hi bobbym,

Yes!
Couldn't find a proof though.

### Re: Riemann zeta function and Harmonic number

Hi gAr;

Here is some mind boggling stuff that uses the hyperharmonic numbers. The harmonic number is a subset of them.

### Re: Riemann zeta function and Harmonic number

Hi bobbym,

That's awesome stuff!
It cited a reference which has the idea to prove the identity: http://algo.inria.fr/flajolet/Publications/FlSa98.pdf

Need time to understand, if I'm able to!

Thanks.
