The article discusses some of the mathematical results widely used in practice which contain the Riemann ζ-function, and, at first glance, are in contradiction with common sense. A geometric approach is suggested, based on the concept of the curvature of space, in which is calculated an algorithm that specifies the representation of ζ-function as an infinite diverging series. The analysis is based on the use of Einstein equations to calculate the metric of curved space-time. The solution of the Einstein equations is a metric that has a singularity, like the metric in the vicinity of the black hole. The result can be interpreted in the spirit of a Turing machine that performs the proposed algorithm for calculating the sum of a divergent series.
