COMMENTS

Zeta(1/2) can be calculated as a limit similar to the limit for the Euler-Mascheroni constant or Euler gamma. [Mats Granvik Nov 14 2012]

The WolframAlpha link gives 3 series and 3 integrals for zeta(1/2). To extend the sequence, click "More digits" repeatedly. - Jonathan Sondow, Jun 20 2013

FORMULA

Zeta(1/2) = Limit of Sum from n=1 to n=k of 1/n^(1/2) -2*k^(1/2), as k goes to infinity. (According to Mathematica 8). [Mats Granvik Nov 14 2012]
