Help with proving a statement based on riemann sums?

Suppose we have a reimmen sum with no removed partitions which I call the "total sum". $$\lim_{n\to\infty}\sum_{i=1}^{n}f\left(a+\left(\frac{b-a}{n}\right)i\right)\left(\frac{b-a}{n}\right)$$ And ...

Find a closed form formula for $\sum_{n=2}^N\frac{1}{n^2}\sin^2(\pi x)\csc^2(\frac{\pi x}{n})$? - a sum shows all primes.

I meant by "closed form formula" a formulate that doesn't have summation or has very few terms. Maybe there's a better term for this meaning. I found this function that has very interesting property ...

Is there a way to write this recurrence relation in faster-to-program manner?

I have the following recurrence relation for some coefficients $$b_{n+2} = \frac{1}{(n+3)(n+2)P_0} \sum_{k=1}^n (n-k+2) (n-k+1) b_k b_{n-k+2}, \quad n>1$$ with $b_1$ to $b_3$ and $P_0$ being the ...
