COMMENTS

In a widely distributed May 2011 email, Wadim Zudilin gave a rebuttal to v1 of Kim's 2011 preprint: "The mistake (unfixable) is on p. 6, line after eq. (3.3). 'Without loss of generality' can be shown to work only for a finite set of n_k's; as the n_k are sufficiently large (and N is fixed), the inequality for epsilon is false." In a May 2013 email, Zudilin extended his rebuttal to cover v2, concluding that Kim's argument "implies that at least one of zeta(2), zeta(3), zeta(4) and zeta(5) is irrational, which is trivial."  Jonathan Sondow, May 06 2013

FORMULA

From Peter Bala, Dec 04 2013: (Start)
Definition: zeta(5) = sum {n >= 1} 1/n^5.
zeta(5) = 2^5/(2^5  1)*( sum {n even} n^5*p(n)*p(1/n)/(n^2  1)^6 ), where p(n) = n^2 + 3. See A013667, A013671 and A013675.(End)


EXAMPLE

1 + 1/32 + 1/243 + 1/1024 + 1/3125 + 1/7776 + 1/16807 + ... = 1.036927755143369926331365486457...
