Re: Series

I don't mind having the discussion.

Re: Series

Thanks gAr.

Can you post the accelerator Borwein found?

I am sure I showed it to you already. I know we discussed it. It is also useless for this sequence. I used Romberg and it worked well.

Want the code for Borwien's?

Re: Series

Yes. Is it the one with all the square roots and stuff?

Re: Series

accelerate[n_]:=Module[{d,b,c,s},
d=(3+Sqrt[8])^n;
d=(d+1/d)/2;
b=-1;
c=-d;
s=0;
Table[c=b-c;s=s+c*a[k];b=(k+n)(k-n) b/((k+1/2)(k+1)),{k,0,n-1}];
s/d]

Remember how to use it?

Re: Series

That's the one I was thinking of.

I set a[n] to be the array of the series terms. Then I do N[acc[number_of_terms],number_of_digits.

Re: Series

I am pretty sure it is just for alternating sequences.

Re: Series

Yes, I know. It also has to start at 0.

Re: Series

You can adjust the index to handle that. Anyways it is not useful on this problem.

Re: Series

Hi bobbym

You didn't tell me how we actually get the numerical answer here.

Re: Series

Hm, isn't romberg for integrals?

Re: Series

It is for sequences that are the result of numerical integrations on an integral. Actually it is a bunch of sequence accelerators.
