In this last quantity, substitute x with −x. Then multiply −1 with it. Then the outcome is −f x + g x . Namely: 7 f x +g x =− −f +g −x −x . Hence the answer for (2b) is simply − ∞ m=2 −1 m−1 m ζm −1 m −x , which is simplified as ∞ m=2 (3) ζm −1 m Define the Euler’s Gamma function Γ x xm . as follows: +∞ Γx tx−1 e−t dt = x>0 t=0 Clearly, this function Γ x . is a generalization of the notion of factorials, in the following sense: For a non-negative integer m, Γ m+1 = m...
