Explicit formulae and discrepancy estimates for $a$-points of the Riemann zeta-function

Siegfred Baluyot and Steven M. Gonek

Vol. 303 (2019), No. 1, 47–71

For a fixed a0, an a-point of the Riemann zeta-function is a complex number ρa = βa + iγa such that ζ(ρa) = a. Recently J. Steuding estimated the sum

0<γaT βa>0 xρa

for a fixed x as T , and used this to prove that the ordinates γa are uniformly distributed modulo 1. We provide uniform estimates for this sum when x > 0 and 1, and T > 1. Using this, we bound the discrepancy of the sequence λγa when λ0. We also find explicit representations and bounds for the Dirichlet coefficients of the series 1(ζ(s) a) and upper bounds for the abscissa of absolute convergence of this series.
