Abstract: We characterize the nonreal zeros of the Riemann zeta function and their multiplicities, using the ``asymptotic convergence degree'' of ``improper Riemann sums'' for elementary improper integrals. The Riemann Hypothesis and the conjecture that all the zeros are simple then have elementary formulations.
