# Euler zeta function

Euler studied the sumfor integers

*s*> 1 (clearly (1) is infinite). Euler discovered a formula relating (2

*k*) to the Bernoulli numbers yielding results such as and .

What has this got to do with the primes? The answer is in the following
product taken over the primes *p* (also discovered by Euler):

Euler wrote this as
