Hi all, perhaps someone can shed some light on the following sum:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]

\lim_{m\rightarrow\infty}\frac{1}{m}\sum_{k=1}^{m-1}\left[1-\left(\frac{k}{2m-k}\right)^{1/2} \right]^2

[/tex]

What particularly throws me off is having the m variable as part of the summands. I have ran numerical simulations and it appears to "converge" to a constant as m grows large.

Any pointers to some theory that could help me solve this is greatly appreciated :)
