Derive the following, for any integer k

  1. Nov 30, 2003 #1
    I really need someone to answer this by tomorrow 12/01 10:50 am pacific time...

    1) Derive the following, for any integer k.
    SUM OF: 1/(n^(2k)) = ((2(pi))^(2k)(-1)^(k+1)B2k ) /(2(2k)!)
    where Bn is defined by the following, for |x| < 2(pi).
    (x)/(e^(x)-1) = SUM OF: (Bn x^n) / (n!)

    This one too please

    4) Derive the following, for 0 < or equal x < or equal 2(pi)
    Sum of: cos(nx)/n^2 = (3(x)^2-6(pi)(x)+2(pi)^2) / 12

    This looks like homework to me.

    (Especially when they are numbered "1." and "4."!!)

    Can you at least make it more clear for us to even start? LOL? What are you talking about, sigma with top index infinity?

    don't mind the index... its there, because it sets the infinity on top of the SUM OF: and sets the n=1 down below it... any clues...
    there not homework... extra credit
