Abstract

Euler studied double sums of the form$$\z(r,s)=\sum_{1\le m<n}{1\over n^sm^r}$$for positive integers $r$ and $s$, and inferred, for the special cases$r = 1$ or $r+s$ odd, elegant identities involving values of theRiemann zeta function. Here we establish various series expansions of$\z(r, s)$ for real numbers $r$ and $s$. These expansions generallyinvolve infinitely many zeta values. The series of one type terminatefor integers $r$ and $s$ with $r+s$ odd, reducing in those cases tothe Euler identities. Series of another type are rapidly convergentand therefore useful in numerical experiments.
