Help with summation

  1. Oct 9, 2008 #1
    Is there a way to simplify this sum to a generalized function? Would I have to use the gamma function?

    [tex] \sum^x_{k=0} ({t \choose {2k}}/(2k+1)^y)[/tex]

    where x and y are constants

    This is not homework.

    Would it help at all if I added that x is a function of t?
