Assuming the Riemann Hypothesis, the nonreal zeros of zeta(s,1) = zeta(s) lie on the critical line Re(s) = 1/2 and the nonreal zeros of zeta(s,1/2) = (2^s - 1)*zeta(s) lie on the critical line and on the imaginary axis Re(s) = 0.

Solve the differential equation ds(a)/da = -(dzeta(s,a)/da)/(dzeta(s,a)/ds) = s*zeta(s+1,a)/(dzeta(s,a)/ds) where s = s0(a) and zeta(s0(a),a) = 0. For initial conditions use the zeros of zeta(s,1).


The consecutive zeros rho78 and rho79 of zeta(s,1) on the line Re(s) = 1/2 connect by paths of zeros of zeta(s,a) to zeros of zeta(s,1/2) on the line Re(s) = 0, so rho78 and rho79 are "unstable twins," and 78 and 79 are members.
