comment Limit of differences of truncated series and integrals give Euler-gamma, zeta and logs. Why?
Note that you are looking at a particular case of Euler-Maclaurin formula: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euler%E2%80%93Maclaurin_formula

As a (negative) application, the Risch algorithm, which is supposed to decide whether a function admits a closed-form antiderivative (and computes it if it exsts), cannot decide in general exactly because of this. The proof of its termination relies on one being able to tell whether a given expression is zero.

@MichaelHardy: Your operator is nothing more than the Euler-Maclaurin series :)
