Java has shift operators >>, << and  >>> but C-sharp only has >> and <<.
How would I translate >>> in Java to C-sharp?

The details behind the ">>>" operator seem to be explained as follows:

n >>> s

if n is positive then its the same as n >> s

but if n is negative there are two cases:
   if n is an int and negative then:
       n >>> s = (n>>s)+(2<<~s)
   if n is a long and negative then:
       n >>> s = (n>>s)+(2L<<~s)

So I would try the following:

    static int UnsignedRightShift(int n, int s) //n is an integer
    {
          if(n > 0){
               return n>>s;
          }else{
               return (n>>s)+(2<<~s);
          }
    }
    static long UnsignedRightShift(long n, int s)  //Overloaded function where n is a long
    {
          if(n > 0){
               return n>>s;
          }else{
               return (n>>s)+(((long)2)<<~s);
          }
    }

you can achieve similar efect by casting the variable to unsigned and using the >> operator.

by example:
unsigned int result = ((unsigned int)yourVariable) >> yourShift;

it is similar to:

n = ((unsigned int)n) >> 1;
