Hi,
given that the “introduce yourself “ board is temporarly unavailable I briefly introduce myself here and then I submit my question about calculus and WA.
My name is Eugenio and I work in Human resources sector in Italy. I'm also a part time forex and index trader. I'm interested in building a deep knowledge in quantitative finance and historical data analysis and handling. I'm currently rebuilding my math foundations and I'm using WA as a tool to achieve a deeper understanding of several math skills. I'll be grateful to all the people that will help me to become a WA power user.
Here is my question:
I have to calculate the definite integral from 0 to 1 of a series sum from n= 1 to infinity.
The function is ((n+2)/(2^n))x^(n+1)
I've tried to use this syntax in WA search engine:
integrate [sum_n=0^infinity ((n+2)/(2^n))x^(n+1) {x, 0, 1} series representation
I have written “series representation” at the end cause I need the output to be in series form.
WA doesen't understand the query. Did I make some mistake?
Is possible to use WA to make short scripts? What I mean is:
an instruction to assign the series sum to a variable; successive instructions to perform on that variable different calculations.
tnx
