Let $\mathbb{N} \ni m \geq 2$. Evaluate the series

$$\mathcal{S} = \sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{\zeta(2n)+\zeta(3n)+\cdots+\zeta(mn)}{n}$$

in terms of known functions. Here $\zeta$ stands for the Riemann zeta function.

Let $\mathbb{N} \ni m \geq 2$. Evaluate the series

$$\mathcal{S} = \sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{\zeta(2n)+\zeta(3n)+\cdots+\zeta(mn)}{n}$$

in terms of known functions. Here $\zeta$ stands for the Riemann zeta function.

Because there exists. I reached till the very end but I did not actually assemble the pieces to write them in a nicer form. I just left them the way they are.

Someone needs to know the closed form of this product:

$$\prod_{k=2}^{\infty} \left ( 1- \frac{z^n}{k^n} \right )= \prod_{k=0}^{n-1} \frac{1}{\Gamma \left ( 1-z\exp \left [ \left ( 2\pi k i /n \right ) \right ] \right )}$$

now things are way much simplified. The closed form will be a log and as an arguement it will have products of the above form.

Are you sure this is written correctly? This series does not converge for any m.

So we need restrictions? I thought that I did not have to impose $m$ in restrictions. But , nonetheless, suppose that $m$ is such a number that the series converges.

Then no such m exists. $\zeta(an)/n\sim1/n$ as $n\to\infty$ for any positive a.

What makes you feel that a closed form exists?

Can you post the closed form? At least it will help the users to head on to the right path.
