Initially I posted a proof for finding the value of \(\zeta{(2)}\). Now I finally have generalized my approach and formed a recursion for finding the value of zeta function for all even values. Check this( it looks very complicated)

We have our recursion as :

\( \displaystyle \sum _{ r=0 }^{ n }{ {}^{2n}{P}_{2r}\dfrac { { (-1) }^{ r }\zeta (2r+2) }{ { \pi }^{ 2r+2 } } } + { (-1) }^{ n }(2n)!\left(1-\dfrac { 1 }{ { 2 }^{ 2n+1 } } \right)\dfrac { \zeta (2n+2) }{ { \pi }^{ 2n+2 } } = \dfrac { 1 }{ 4(n+1) } \)

This takes much simpler form if we take :

\( \zeta (k)={ \pi }^{ k }{ a }_{ k } \)

\( \displaystyle \sum _{ r=0 }^{ n }{ {}^{2n}{P}_{2r} { (-1) }^{ r }{ a }_{ 2r+2 } } + { (-1) }^{ n }(2n)!\left(1-\frac { 1 }{ { 2 }^{ 2n+1 } } \right){ a }_{ 2n+2 } = \dfrac{1}{ 4(n+1) } \)

You can try finding the values of zeta function from this.

where \(\displaystyle {}^{n}{P}_{r} = \frac { n! }{ (n-r)! } \)

TopNewestCompletely Gone over my Head ! Since I didn't study zeta / gamma function . You guy's are awesome . Please tell me did you studied all such thing's from FIITJEE or from Internet ? – Karan Shekhawat · 2 years ago

These things are there on the internet as well in good calculus books for JEE.Log in to reply

are u really 14 year teen ? Becoz when I was 14 I even don't know about JEE , And i didn;t here calculus word single time . It's quite surprising.Log in to reply

Also do Try my Integration Problems - here – Rajdeep Dhingra · 2 years ago

Nice Ronak.

Did you come up with using the integral. – Rajdeep Dhingra · 2 years ago

Honestly tell me the solution you posted to my problem was it your original approach.Log in to reply

– Rajdeep Dhingra · 2 years ago

Actually, When I saw your approach of getting the Zeta function into the integral by substituting the exponential function into cos and using taylor series. I applied and it got me closer to the answer and I solved it.Log in to reply

Nice formula Ronak :) I'll try to prove it some time later – Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years ago

Wow! that's an amazing formula.

I'll try to figure out the proof in meantime. – Kishlaya Jaiswal · 2 years ago

For example -

\[\left(1-\frac{1}{2^{2n+1}}\right)\] – Kishlaya Jaiswal · 2 years ago

I think you are a potential candidate for becoming a moderator , what do you think ?Log in to reply

– Kishlaya Jaiswal · 2 years ago

I would rather stay quiet in regard to this topic because I consider the Brilliant.org Team knows better than all of us that who are the better potential candidates to become a moderator.Log in to reply

– Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years ago

Haha nice answer , but if the Brilliant Team does ask the community for voting someone , my vote will definitely go to you ! You have all the qualities that a moderator should have and I personally think that after clearing JEE Advanced you should create your message board :)Log in to reply

And for the JEE, my fingers are crossed and I hope for the best. I have an idea, how about starting a message board together (although separate but I mean at the same time) after we finish off with JEE.

And best of luck to you too. \(:)\) – Kishlaya Jaiswal · 2 years ago

Also I like your idea of starting a message board at the same time \(\ddot\smile\) also I wouldn't mind the both of us sharing a message board haha ! – Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years ago
