Again, in my quest to learn things I won't use in a class for at least a year, I've been looking at convolutions. Specifically, after finishing the multiple choice section of an AP Chemistry test 50 minutes early, I looked at the convolution of a polynomial with itself. I'm confused about one thing, though.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here's what I have:

[tex]t^m \star t^m = t^{2m+1} \sum_{n=1}^{m+1} \frac{\binom{m}{n}}{n+m}[/tex]

However, I don't like that sum in the solution, I don't think I computed it right, and I want it gone. Is there any way to do that?
