O zastosowaniu sumowania według Eisensteina do pewnej sumy podwójnej

Agata Matczyk, Vladimir Mityushev, Zbigniew Powązka


The lattice sum S_2 for the square array conditionally converges. Having used physical arguments, Rayleigh chose an order of summation in such a way that S_2 = π. The Eisenstein summation method applied to S2 yields the same result. This paper is devoted to a rigorous proof of S_2 = π for the Eisenstein summation method. The study can be used in class for students as an interesting example which illustrates different types of convergence.
