Abstract: In this paper, we are interested in the evaluation of the zeta function of the simplest cubic field. We first introduce Siegel's formula for values of the zeta function of a totally real number field at negative odd integers. Next, we will develop a method of computing the sum of a divisor function for ideals, and will give a full description for a Siegel lattice of the simplest cubic field. Using these results, we will derive explicit expressions, which involve only rational integers, for values of a zeta function of the simplest cubic field. Finally, as an illustration of our method, we will give a table for zeta values for the first one hundred simplest cubic fields.
