Abstract: A basic idea of Dirichlet is to study a collection of interesting quantities $\{a_n\}_{n\geq 1}$ by means of its Dirichlet series in a complex variable $w$: $\sum _{n\geq 1}a_nn^{-w}$. In this paper we examine this construction when the quantities $a_n$ are themselves infinite series in a second complex variable $s$, arising from number theory or representation theory. We survey a body of recent work on such series and present a new conjecture concerning them.
