Euler's formulae for ζ(2n) and products of Cauchy variables

Paul Bourgade, Takahiko Fujita, Marc Yor

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We show how to recover Euler's formula for ζ(2n), as well as L χ4(2n + 1), for any integer n, from the knowledge of the density of the product ℂ1, ℂ2 . . . , ℂk, for any k ≥ 1, where the ℂi's are independent standard Cauchy variables.
