### Compute polylog of order 3 at $\frac{1}{2}$

How to compute the following series: $$\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{1}{2^nn^3}$$ I am aware this equals polylog of order 3 at $\frac{1}{2}$, but how to prove it using integral or Euler sum only (without ...

### Computing $\lim\limits_{n\to\infty} \Big(\sum\limits_{i = 1}^n \sum\limits_{j = 1}^n \frac1{i^2+j^2}-\frac{\pi}{2} \log(n)\Big)$.

In the chatroom we discussed about the asymptotic of $\displaystyle \sum_{i = 1}^n \sum_{j = 1}^n \frac1{i^2+j^2}$, and if we think of the inverse tangent integral, it's easy to see that ...

### Integral Test for convergence of a series

"Consider the series given by $$\sum_{n=2}^{+\infty}\frac{1}{n\ln n(\ln(\ln n))^{\alpha}}$$ for $\alpha>1$. Use the Integral Testo to conclude if the series is convergent or not." I tried to make ...

### Computing in closed form $\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{\operatorname{Ci}\left(\frac{3}{4}\zeta(2) \space n\right)}{n^2}$

What tools would you recommend me for computing the series below? $$\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{\operatorname{\displaystyle Ci\left(\frac{3}{4}\zeta(2) \space n\right)}}{n^2}$$ I lack the starting ...

### Closed-form of $\displaystyle\sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{(-1)^{n+1}}{n}\Psi_3(n+1)$

Does the following series have a closed-form $$\sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{(-1)^{n+1}}{n}\Psi_3(n+1)$$ where $\Psi_3(x)$ is the polygamma function of order 3. Here is ...

### A identity relating a infinite series and a definite integral [duplicate]

Prove that, $$\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{1}{n^n} = \int_{0}^{1} x^{-x}dx$$ I made no significant progress, I'm looking for hint/ideas to approach this problem. Thanks!

### Decide convergence divergence of $\sum \dfrac{1}{(\ln n)^{\ln n}}$ [duplicate]

Does the series $\sum \dfrac{1}{(\ln n)^{\ln n}}$ converges? I can intuitively say that it converges, because $(\ln n)^{\ln n}$ is going to $\infty$ on a hayabusa

### Why don't we indicate the variable to summed as we do for integrals?

When integrating over a certain variable $x$, we make sure to end the integral with $dx$, like so: $$\int_{1}^{\infty}\frac{1}{x^2}dx$$ The reason for this of course becomes more clear as one goes ...

### Integral/infinite sum related to Bessels which pop up in optical coherence theory

In propagating partially coherent optical fields, the following integral pops up: $$I_1=\int_0^{2\pi} e^{i(a\cos[\theta]+b\cos^2[\theta])}d\theta,$$ where $a$ and $b$ are real numbers. If we ...

### $\int _0^{\pi }\:\sum _{n=0}^{\infty \:}\frac{n\cdot \sin \left(nx\right)}{e^n}dx=\frac{2e}{e^2-1}$

It is asked to prove: $\int _0^{\pi }\:\sum _{n=0}^{\infty \:}\frac{n\cdot \sin \left(nx\right)}{e^n}dx=\frac{2e}{e^2-1}$ I have tried to search for convergence and it gave me 0 so i can't solve it. ...
Consider the function: $f:[0,\frac{1}{2\pi}]\to\mathbb{R}:f(x):=x\cos(1/x)$ In general, every continuous function on a compact interval is Riemann integrable. However, for the tagged partitions: ...
