We give a partition of the critical strip, associated with each partial sum 1 + 2 𝑧 + + 𝑛 𝑧 of the Riemann zeta function for Re 𝑧 < 1 , formed by infinitely many rectangles for which a formula allows us to count the number of its zeros inside each of them with an error, at most, of two zeros. A generalization of this formula is also given to a large class of almost-periodic functions with bounded spectrum.
