# Riemann Zeta Function

The Riemann zeta function is a special function of mathematics and physics that is intimately related to deep results surrounding the prime number theorem.

Riemann zeta function is a graduate-level concept that would be first encountered in a number theory course.

### Prerequisites

Number Theory: | A field of mathematics sometimes called "higher arithmetic" consisting of the study of the properties of integers. Primes and prime factorization are especially important concepts in number theory. |

Prime Number Theorem: | The prime number theorem is a theorem in number theory that specifies the asymptotic frequency of prime numbers. |

Series: | In mathematics, a series is an (often infinite) sum of terms specified by some rule. |
