I think I should add all the different types of harmonic series that are on wikipedia to this article.  I'll try to get it done today.  By 'solving' I mean figuring out the value of the harmonic series just as when Euler solved the zeta function when x = 2.  --[[User: Cosinator| Cosinator]]

Is this about the harmonic series or the zeta function? --Chess64 11:28, 24 June 2006 (EDT)

From the book I learned what a harmonic series is, it only disscussed them in relation to the zeta function. I'm not sure if there is another definition for harmonic series unrelated to the zeta function. Also couldm someone complete the 'How to solve section'? --Cosinator

Usually by harmonic series one understands the series $1+\frac 12+\frac 13+\dots$ (see Mathworld or Wikipedia This is the first time I hear of the series for the $\zeta$-function being refered to as "harmonic series". Also, what do you mean by "How to solve" section: what are we supposed to "solve"?--Fedja 11:19, 28 June 2006 (EDT)
