The proof of the Riemann hypothesis is one of the most important unsolved problems in mathematics.
For this reason, many researchers have attempted the proof of the Riemann hypothesis, but have not been successful. One of the methods proving Riemann hypothesis is interpreting the zeros of the zeta function as the eigenvalues of a certain operator. However, no one found the operator until now. We are able to consider the reflection integral equation as one of the operators. For this reason, the derivation of the reflection integral equation is an important issue.
Leonhard Euler introduced the infinite series of the zeta function in 1737. Bernhard Riemann introduced the analytic continuation of the zeta function in 1859.
David Hilbert and George Polya[2] suggested that the zeros of the zeta function were probably eigenvalues of a certain operator around 1914. This conjecture is called HilbertPolya conjecture.
Zeev Rudnick and Peter Sarnak[3] are studying the distribution of zeros by random matrix theory in 1996. Shigenobu Kurokawa is studying the field with one element[4] around 1996. Alain Connes[5] showed the relation between noncommutative geometry and the Riemann hypothesis in 1998. Christopher Deninger[6] is studying the eigenvalue interpretation of the zeros in 1998.
We obtain a generating function of the inverse Mellintransform. We obtain a new generating function by multiplying the generating function with exponents and reversing the sign. We derive the reflection integral equation from the inverse Ztransform of the generating function.
