## Abstract

I first calculate the charged spherical Rényi entropy by a numerical method that does not require knowledge of any eigenvalue degeneracies, and applies to all odd dimensions. An image method is used to relate the full sphere values to those for an integer covering, n. It is shown to be equivalent to a 'transformation' property of the zeta-function. The limit is explicitly constructed analytically and a relation deduced between the limits of corner coefficients and the effective action (free energy) which generalises, for free fields, a result of Bueno, Myers and Witczak-Krempa and Elvang and Hadjiantonis to any dimension. Finally, the known polynomial expressions for the Rényi entropy on even spheres at zero chemical potential are re-derived in a different form and a simple formula for the conformal anomaly given purely in terms of central factorials is obtained.
