Category: Tests Group: None >Status: Closed >Resolution: Fixed Priority: 5 Private: No Submitted By: Emilio Suarez (folok) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) 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.  >Comment By: Andrej Vodopivec (andrejv) Date: 20100719 16:04 Message: A simple method to discover telescoping sums was added.
