On the zeros of the Riemann zeta function in the critical strip
47. R. P. Brent,
On the zeros of the Riemann zeta function in the critical strip,
Mathematics of Computation 33 (1979), 1361-1372.
We describe a computation which shows that the Riemann zeta function
has exactly 75,000,000 zeros of the form
sigma + i.t
in the region 0 <t <32,585,736.4;
all these zeros are simple and lie on the line sigma = 1/2.
(A similar result for the first 3,500,000 zeros was established
by Rosser, Yohe and Schoenfeld.)
Counts of the number of Gram blocks of various types and the number of
failures of "Rosser's rule" are given.
1. Page 1361, line -9 (not counting footnotes):
replace H(10) by H(15).
2. Page 1362, equation (2.3): replace
B2k by |B2k|.
3. Page 1362, two lines after equation (2.3):
the bound on |rn(t)| is incorrect.
Correct bounds are given in
(The error is only significant for small t
and did not affect the computation of zeros of the zeta function.)
