Let $\zeta$ be the Riemann zeta function.


$\ds \frac {\pi^{s / 2} } {\map \Gamma {\frac s 2}} \cdot \paren {- \frac 1 {s \paren{1 - s}} + \int_1^\infty \paren {x^{s / 2 - 1} + x^{- \paren {s + 1} / 2} } \map \omega x \rd x}$

defines an analytic continuation of $\zeta$ to the half-plane $\map \Re s > 0$ minus $s = 1$.


By Integral Representation of Riemann Zeta Function in terms of Jacobi Theta Function, it coincides with $\map \zeta s$ for $\map \Re s > 1$.

Interchanging integral and derivative, one shows that the integral is analytic for $\map \Re s > 0$.
