=> Using the identity x^ns-1=(x^s-1)sum(x^ks), n is integer, and the product
=> form of Riemann zeta function: zeta(s)=1/product(1-p^-s) over all primes p,

which converges only for real part of s exceeding 1,

=> I get zeta(ns)=1/product(1-p^-ns)=1/[product(1-p^-s)*product(sum(x^-ks)]
=> =zeta(s)/product(sum(x^-ks). Particularly, if zeta(s)=0 => zeta(ns)=0.

which is not a problem, since the zeta function doesn't vanish at s
if the real part of s exceeds 1.
