Hi rajinikanth0602;

Save the rupees but that sum diverges.

Hi bobbym

Is it possible to get a GF of it? I think I have something, but now I am even more unsure of it.

Hi;

I do not know the answer to that. What I do know is that I have seen that sum before. It is an asymptotic sum. They usually diverge, this one is no different.

Hi rajinikanth0602;

You can call me bobbym here. That is close to my name.

At present, all I know is that it diverges. I do not have anything else. If I get something I will definitely post it for you.

Hi rajinikanth0602;

As I have said, I am retired due to injuries. That means I no longer work.

When I did work my jobs were math related primarily in numerical analysis, combinatorics, probability and programming mainly.

I am from the United States. I am of southern extraction.

Hi rajinikanth0602;

I will do what I can but we can only work through the forum. You can post any problem or most anything right in here. You will receive help and not always from me. There are capable people here.

### Re: a challenging problem for all

Hi;

It is questionable that you will be able to move the y^2 through the Sigma like that. Or maybe you can. What do you get for an answer?

It seems simplest to me to just prove that the numerator of the summand is larger than the denominator. Then you would be adding an infinite number of terms all greater than 1. Terms that are never getting smaller. This looks like it can be done by induction.

Hi bobbym

S(sqrt(x)) is the same as the sum above. I just want a closed form. Like 1/(1-x) is the EGF for:

even though the sequence doesn't converge.

### Re: a challenging problem for all

How can you get a closed form? The upper index of summation is not a variable. Either it sums to some constant or it diverges.
