function [f] = lambda(z)
%LAMBDA  Dirichlet Lambda function
%usage: f = lambda(z)
%tested on version 5.3.1
%      This program calculates the Dirichlet Lambda function
%      for the elements of Z using the Dirichlet deta function.
%      Z may be complex and any size.
%      Has a pole at z=1, zeros for z=(-even integers),
%      z=0+i*k2Pi/ln(2), and an
%      infinite number of zeros for z=1/2+i*y
%see also: Zeta, Eta, Betad, Bern, Euler
