Product of a sequence identities

  1. Apr 7, 2013 #1
    HI, does anyone know a decent site where I can find a few product identities? I googled it, but all that came up were trig identities. I am not looking for those; I am specifically looking for product of a sequence identities: ∏

    Those are quite interesting, but not what I am looking for. I mean if there are any sites that post a full list of identities, not just specific ones. That would be very helpful.

    It's an interesting question what would constitute a "non-trivial" product identity. An additive identity [itex] \sum_{i=1}^{\infty} X_i = Y [/itex] implies a product identity [itex] \prod_{i=1}^{\infty} e^{x_i} = e^Y [/itex]. A product identity that had negative factors could not be converted back into an additive identity by taking logarithms, but there might be some other methods of transformation that would revert it to an additive identity.
