### A zeta limit

Posted: Tue Apr 11, 2017 7:30 pm
Let us denote with $\zeta$ the Riemann zeta function defined as $\zeta(0)=-\frac{1}{2}$. Let us also denote with $\zeta^{(n)}$ the $n$-th derivative of zeta. Evaluate the limit

$$\ell=\lim_{n \rightarrow +\infty} \frac{\zeta^{(n)}(0)}{n!}$$

We know that the function $\displaystyle f(z) \equiv \zeta(z) + \frac{1}{1-z}$ is a holomorphic function. The Taylor series around $0$ is

$$\zeta(z) + \frac{1}{1-z} = \sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \left( \frac{\zeta^{(n)}(0)}{n!} + 1 \right) z^n$$

which converges forall $z \in \mathbb{C}$ thus $\displaystyle \lim_{n \to +\infty} \frac{\zeta^{(n)}(0)}{n!} = -1$.

Using the above fact we get that $\zeta^{(n)}(0) \sim -n!$.
