Partial sum of a series

  1. Apr 25, 2004 #1
    Hello everybody!

    I'm having some trouble with series. My calculus teacher asked us to find the partial sum of

    Sigma from 1 to n [n^-(1 + 1/n)]

    It is obvious that the series diverges when trying to find the infinite sum. However, is it possible to find an expression dependant of n of the partial sum? I don't know where to start from

    1/(n*n^1/n) ... how does that go on the tex thing? I couldn't get it to work...
