# Gamma-Zeta Product

Start with the substitution $$s = nu$$. Show that $\Gamma(x)\zeta(x) = \int _{ 0 }^{ \infty }{ { e }^{ -s } } { s }^{ x-1 }ds\left( \sum _{ n=1 }^{ \infty }{ { n }^{ -x } } \right)$ is equivalent to the integral $\Gamma(x)\zeta(x) = \int _{ 0 }^{ \infty }{ \frac { { u }^{ x-1 } }{ { e }^{ u }-1 } du } .$

Solution

Since the gamma function is a real number, we may treat the product as $\Gamma(x)\zeta(x) = \sum _{ n=1 }^{ \infty }{ \int _{ 0 }^{ \infty }{ { e }^{ -s } } {\left( \frac{s}{n} \right)}^{ x-1 }\frac{1}{n}ds } .$

We let $$s = nu$$ and $$ds=ndu$$, thus

\begin{align*} \Gamma(x)\zeta(x) &= \sum _{ n=1 }^{ \infty }{ \int _{ 0 }^{ \infty }{ { e }^{ -nu } } {u}^{ x-1 }du } \\ &= \int _{ 0 }^{ \infty }{ ({ e }^{ -u} +{ e }^{ -2u} +{ e }^{ -3u} +... ) } {u}^{ x-1 }du \\ &=\int _{ 0 }^{ \infty }{ { u }^{ x-1 }{ e }^{ -u } } \left( \frac { { e }^{ u } }{ { e }^{ u }-1 } \right) du \\ &=\int _{ 0 }^{ \infty }{ \frac { { u }^{ x-1 } }{ { e }^{ u }-1 } } du. \end{align*}
