For s, the Euler zeta function and the Hurwitz-type Euler zeta function are defined by ζE(s)=2n=1((1)n/ns), and ζE(s,x)=2n=0((1)n/(n+x)s). Thus, we note that the Euler zeta functions are entire functions in whole complex s-plane, and these zeta functions have the values of the Euler numbers or the Euler polynomials at negative integers. That is, ζE(k)=Ek, and ζE(k,x)=Ek(x). We give some interesting identities between the Euler numbers and the zeta functions. Finally, we will give the new values of the Euler zeta function at positive even integers.
