Has anybody read marcus de sautoy's book 'the music of the primes' which is basically about prime numbers and the Riemann Hypothesis? There is a baffling bit about Ramajan's infinite sum: 1 + 2 + 3 + ... n+ ... = -1/12. Can anybody throw any light on this?

Uh, all I know is that 1-2+3-4+5-6+7...=1/4 or something...
oh! the book says that the clue to decoding this formula is to write it as 1 + 1/2^-1 + 1/3^-1 + 1/ 4^-1 +...+ 1/n^-1 + ..... - and this is Riemanns answer on how to calculate the zeta function when fed with the number -1.
- the book didn't elucidate any further on this which is very frustrating.
