Hi guys, i'm hoping someone could explain this for me... and was also hoping that some decent literature could be suggested to help me get more comfortable with series expansions of things etc...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So i was playing around with the Q function (its used in quantum optics) and in the book they say that;

For the sum from 0 to infinity Ʃn^n = 1

(the bold case n's represent 'average' values - not sure if that makes a difference?)

Why is this the case ?

Thanks to anyone who can shed some light on this.
