On Analytic Properties of a Multiple L-Function

  • Hideaki Ishikawa
Part of the International Society for Analysis, Applications and Computation book series (ISAA, volume 9)


A multiple L-function is introduced and its analytic continuation is established by a simple application of the Euler-Maclaurin summation formula. Moreover the location of poles is investigated and the absolute value of the function with respect to the imaginary part of the variable is estimated.
