## Abstract

Let ζ (s, α) be the Hurwitz zeta function with parameter α. Power mean values of the form ∑_{a=1}^{q}ζ(s,a/q)^{h} or ∑_{a=1}^{q}ζ(s,a/q)^{2h} are studied, where q and h are positive integers. These mean values can be written as linear combinations of ∑_{a=1}^{q}ζ_{r}(S_{1},., S_{r};a/q), where ζ_{r}(S_{1}., S_{r}; α) is a generalization of Euler-Zagier multiple zeta sums. The Mellin-Barnes integral formula is used to prove an asymptotic expansion of ∑_{a=1}^{q}ζ_{r}(S_{1},., S_{r},;a/q) with respect to q. Hence a general way of deducing asymptotic expansion formulas for ∑_{a=1}^{q}ζ(s, a/q)^{h} and ∑_{a=1}^{q}ζ(s, a/q)^{2h} is obtained. In particular, the asymptotic expansion of ∑_{a=1}^{q}ζ(1/2, a/q)^{3} with respect to q is written down.
