Well,if I decode it then tell you what it does,you can search for the Maxima equivalent.

Those are a lot of ifs. Usually that means a dismal failure...

### Re: Find the general term!!!

The algorithm to go from a generating function to a recurrence is pretty straight forward unfortunately I usually go the other way.

### Re: Find the general term!!!

I like constructing the reccurence and than getting the GF too,but I don't know how to go the other way round.

### Re: Find the general term!!!

There is always a way to do something like that if you are willing to make some concessions.

But here we are back at the crossroads of experimental mathematics, discrete mathematics, computer math. Just because mathematica can do it easily does not imply there is a good hand method!

### Re: Find the general term!!!

No, no, I am looking for something I could implement in Maxima.

What kinds of concessions?

Why is there a " solved" banner over my avatar?!
