The exponential analogue of a generalized Weierstrass series

George Joseph Kertz and Francis Regan

Vol. 19 (1966), No. 3, 461–466
Abstract

The generalized Weierstrass series

∞∑    --zn---
an1 + z2n
n=1

has as its exponential analogue

∑∞      e−λnz
an1+-e−2λnz
n=1

where {an} is a sequence of complex-valued constants and {λn} is any real-valued strictly monotone increasing unbounded sequence.

In this paper the λn will be chosen to be ln n. Then the above series becomes

      ∑∞      n−z
A(z) =   an 1+-n−2z,
n=1
(1)

hereafter called simply the A-series. In its region of absolute convergence an A-series can be expressed as a Dirichlet series; conversely, a Dirichlet series can be represented by an A-series. Under restrictions on the sequence {an}, the imaginary axis becomes a natural boundary of the function represented by the A-series.
