Summary: Telescopic series with Maxima
Initial Comment:
Telescopic series cannot be sum by Maxima with the package simplifysum? for exemple:
load(simplify_sum);
%i1 sum(1/log(n+1)1/log(n),n,2,inf);
%o1 sum(1/log(n+1)1/log(n),n,2,inf);
%i2 simplify_sum(%);
%o2 sum((log(n+1)log(n))/(log(n)*log(n+1)),n,2,inf)
The obvious result is 1/log(2) so Maxima does't cancel terms.
