 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS This constant xi arises in the Davenport-Heilbronn zeta-function Z(s)=Sum_{k>=1} b(k)/k^s where b(k) is the 5-periodic sequence with period [1,xi,-xi,0]. Z satisfies a functional equation (like zeta) but does not satisfy RH. Some nontrivial zeros are off the critical line (see reference).
