comment Useful device in complex analysis (Perron's formula)
I read this in a book last week and made quick note of it due to its obvious usefulness. It's also mentioned in a video on Pretentious Analytic Number Theory by Granville - start the video at 10 mins, 30 second: youtube.com/watch?v=RpuhtlFqFLw

I think that last edit should get across what I actually mean.

comment Proving $\arg(zw)=\arg(z)+\arg(w)$
Ah, yes I was always aware of that problem but I was only ever considering principal arguments. I think I just limited the scope of the question which wouldn't do as you quite rightly said.

The principal argument is a well known concept. What do you mean by the usual sum?

In that case, $\text{Arg}(-i)=3\pi/2$, and so $\text{Arg}(-i)+\text{Arg}(-i)=3\pi\equiv \pi$. But $\text{Arg}(-i\times-i)=\text{Arg}(-1)=\pi$. This is correct given arguments in $[0,2\pi)$.

I think that fixes it, but I'm sure you will throw another spanner my way @ Did.

comment Find the generating function of the sequence $a_n = \sum\limits_{k=0}^n k(k-1)$
For reference, the answer is $$\frac{2 x^2}{(x-1)^4}.$$
