# Dirichlet series of integers with missing digits

For certain sequences $A$ of positive integers with missing $g$-adic digits, the Dirichlet series $F_A(s) = \sum_{a∈A} a^{−s}$ has abscissa of convergence $\sigma_c < 1$. The number $\sigma_c$ is computed. This generalizes and strengthens a classical theorem of Kempner on the convergence of the sum of the reciprocals of a sequence of integers with missing decimal digits.
