Zeta regularization is a method to treat the divergent quantities appearing in several areas of mathematics and physics, say Fermi and Pizzocchero, and these are managed by introducing a complex parameter, with the role of a regular, and defining their renormalized versions in terms of the analytic continuation with respect to the regulator.

of Oxford) introduces the constructive approximation of polynomials and rational functions, and extends the techniques to interpolation, quadrature, rootfinding, analytic continuation, extrapolation of sequence and series, and solution of differential equations.
The results of the present paper are related to the approximation of functions which are continuous on [0,1] and possess an analytic continuation into a disk {z : [absolute value of z] < a}, a > 0, by their q-Bernstein polynomials in the case q > 1.

Emphasizing how complex analysis is a natural outgrowth of multivariable real calculus, this graduate textbook introduces the Cauchy integral formula, the properties and behavior of holomorphic functions, harmonic functions, analytic continuation, topology, Mergelyan's theorem, Hilbert spaces, and the prime number theorem.
