Some sumsHi; When you get them, please use the hide button. Last edited by bobbym (20090911 14:56:09) In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #2 20090911 15:57:29

Re: Some sumsThis was the most difficult of the three. It is interesting that a complicated expression can be summed so simply.

Re: Some sumsI think you are going to pull a math muscle. That can be painful. Do not forget to stretch before you do any more of them. Drink plenty of liquids too.
