 On the non-vanishing of a certain class of Dirichlet series In this paper, we consider Dirichlet series with Euler products of the form $F(s) = \prod_{p}{\bigl(1 + {a_p\over{p^s}}\bigr)}$ in $\Re(s) > 1$, and which are regular in $\Re(s) \geq 1$ except for a pole of order $m$ at $s = 1$. We establish criteria for such a Dirichlet series to be non-vanishing on the line of convergence. We also show that our results can be applied to yield non-vanishing results for a subclass of the Selberg class and the Sato-Tate conjecture. Categories:11Mxx, 11M41
