Epstein zeta function and Bloch-Wigner dilogarithm. (Fonction zêta d’Epstein et dilogarithme de Bloch-Wigner.) (French. English summary) Zbl 1278.11072

Summary: We give an expression for \(s=2\) of some normalized Epstein series as Bloch-Wigner dilogarithms of algebraic numbers of \(\mathbb{Q}(\sqrt{\Delta})\), for the discriminants \(\Delta\) associated to the quadratic form.
