A discrete version of the Mishou theorem

  • Eugenijus Buivydas
  • Antanas Laurinčikas


H. Mishou proved that the Riemann zeta-function and Hurwitz zeta-function with transcendental parameter are jointly universal, i.e., their shifts (continuous) approximate any pair of analytic functions. In the paper, a discrete version of the Mishou theorem is presented. In this case, the parameter of the Hurwitz zeta-function and the step of discrete shifts are connected by a certain independence relation.
