Clean-up It's hard to read your code and it's hard to guess what you're asking for. We can make things a lot cleaner with a few tweaks. Firstly, you're defining $\delta$ by hand, when it's clearly just the KroneckerDelta. Next, in your definitions of t and x, Signature already handles whether the arguments are equal and/or ordered. So you can delete these. ...

Here's a way to make the syntax proposed in the commands work: Sum[f[{i1, i2, i3}], Evaluate[Sequence @@ Thread[{{i1, i2, i3}, 0, ∞}]]] Or using a predefined list l: l = {i1, i2, i3}; Sum[f[l], Evaluate[Sequence @@ Thread[{l, 0, ∞}]]] (* same output *)

One way: idx = {i1, i2, i3}; lower = {0, 1, 2}; upper = {2, 3, 4}; Sum[f[Sequence @@ idx], Evaluate[Sequence @@ Transpose[{idx, lower, upper}]]] (* f[0, 1, 2] + f[0, 1, 3] + f[0, 1, 4] + f[0, 2, 2] + f[0, 2, 3] + f[0, 2, 4] + f[0, 3, 2] + f[0, 3, 3] + f[0, 3, 4] + f[1, 1, 2] + f[1, 1, 3] + f[1, 1, 4] + f[1, 2, 2] + f[1, 2, 3] + f[1, 2, 4] + f[1, ...

You are admittedly probably better off using a package such as the one @qahtah mentioned in the comments or the package xAct, but just for fun, here is a way of defining a function EinsteinSum which does what you're looking for—unless I've misunderstood. If you have any questions about why this works the way it does, or if I've misunderstood what you're ...

Some things change to better. In 12.3 f[k_] = Sin[k]/k s[n_] := Sum[f[k]^n, {k, 0, \[Infinity]}] Table[{n, s[n]}, {n, 1, 7}] // Expand//FullSimplify {{1, (1 + \[Pi])/2}, {2, (1 + \[Pi])/2}, {3, 1/8 (4 + 3 \[Pi])}, {4, 1/6 (3 + 2 \[Pi])}, {5, 1/2 + (115 \[Pi])/384}, {6, 1/2 + (11 \[Pi])/40}, {7, 1/2 + (1/46080)\[Pi] (129423 + 4 (-7 + \[Pi]) \[Pi] (147 - ...

The sum is alternating, so you might need extra precision and NSumTerms: katsurda[x_] := NSum[(-x)^j/j! Zeta[j], {j, 2, Infinity}, WorkingPrecision -> 16, NSumTerms -> Max[15, 2 x]]; katsurdaApprox[x_] := x (Log[x] + 2 EulerGamma - 1) - Zeta[0]; plot1 = DiscretePlot[katsurda[x], {x, 0, 40, 2}]; plot2 = Plot[katsurdaApprox[x], {x, 0, 40}]; Show[...

The code for D[Sum[..],..] assumes no options to Sum, so Method -> "Procedural" is treated as an iterator. This is a bug. After assuming it's an iterator, the code fails internally because it's a bad iterator. This mysteriously leads to a derivative of {{0}}, which seems an unimportant bug. This last bug happens with D[Sum[(xx - x[j])^2, j], ...

Seems like the Sum option I was looking for is Method -> "Procedural": Sum[ -2 Exp[-(xx - Subscript[x, k])^2/(V + Subscript[Vx, k]^2)] Subscript[n, k] (xx - Subscript[x, k])/(V + Subscript[Vx, k]^2) , {k, nsp}, Method -> "Procedural"] // AbsoluteTiming

The expression is a ratio of two sums, and is very insensitive to $n$. Any $n\ge 10$ gives results equivalent to $n= \infty$. Therefore, redefine the expression for the limiting value of $n\rightarrow\infty$. The sum in the denominator is the Harmonic number of order $p$, or Zeta[p] when $n\rightarrow\infty$. The sum in the numerator is a linear combination ...

tl;dr I would consider this a bug, although not a surprising one. This is how one would normally write this sum in Mathematica: 1 + Sum[3, {i, n}, {j, i, n - 3}] To keep things simple, I will use the following simplified version: Sum[1, {i, n}, {j, i, n - 3}] (* 1/2 (-5 n + n^2) *) As you observe, the result is not correct for symbolic n. For an explicit ...

There is a subtle difference you need to account for with a Piecewise so that it doesn't incorporate the inner sum when your range(i,n-3+1) is empty: result[n_] := 1 + Sum[ Piecewise[{{Sum[i + j, {j, i, n - 3}], i < n - 3 + 1}}, 0] , {i, 1, n}] Mathematica can now generate a correct closed form for symbolic $n$ given by result[n]:  1+\left\{ \begin{...

Here is one way to force s to be non-negative by replacing s with Exp[logs]: solve[p_, n_, eps_] := (formula[s_] = 1/HarmonicNumber[n, p] Sum[(1 - 1/i^p)^s 1/i^p, {i, 1, n}]; invert[f_] := FindRoot[f[Exp[logs]] == eps, {logs, Log[2]}, AccuracyGoal -> 4, PrecisionGoal -> 4]; invert[formula]); logs /. solve[6, 1000, 10^-2] // Exp // Ceiling (* 39 *) ...

The Harmonic number $H_{n-1}$ can be expressed by the Digamma function $\psi(n)$ together with the Euler-Mascheroni constant $\gamma\approx 0.5772$. $\psi(n)=H_{n-1}-\gamma$ In MMA $\psi(n)$ and $\gamma$ are called by PolyGamma[n] and EulerGamma. Table[Limit[(PolyGamma[k] + EulerGamma)*k, k -> n], {n, 0, 4}] *( {-1, 0, 2, 9/2, 22/3} *) The limes is ...
