Note that L(s) = \frac{1}{\Gamma(s)} \int_0^\infty \frac{t^{s-1}}{e^t+e^{-t}}dt

Show that L can be extended to an entire function L : \mathbb{C} \rightarrow  \mathbb{C}
It turns out that  L(s) is continued by the following:

 L(1-s) = \left(\frac{2}{\pi}\right)^s\sin\left(\frac{\pi s}{2}\right)\Gamma(s)L(s)
