About the book
The Hurwitz and the Lerch Zeta-Functions in the Second Variable deals with Hurwitz’s zeta-function as a function of the second variable, using elementary methods. In parallel, briefly Lerch’s zeta-function as the function of the second variable has been developed. Hurwitz’s zeta-function as a function of the second polynomials, gamma/digamma functions, Dirichlet L-series, multiple zeta functions etc. The pre-requisites for this book are a knowledge of advanced calculus, function theory of one complex variable with a brief exposure to arithmetical functions, Riemann’s zeta function and Dirichlet L-series.
