Went to see dissapearing number last night at the Barbican. Apparently,
Srinivasa Ramanujan proved that 1+2+3+... = -1/12, I believe using the zet function?
Can anyone explain how this can be. I am high sch maths teacher, but would like to see how this is proved.
If you can help, I would really appreciate it.
Thanks

I need some help with this. Every wb page I look at is either full of maths, I've not seen for years, or these is a proof in a physics forum that
Ramanujan Summation and Divergent series in relation to the Riemann Zeta function. I'm not sure is concrete.
What is the R next to the -1/12?
