    sum_{k=1}^{n} lg^{s}k

    What does sum_{k=1}^{n} lg^{s}k mean?
    Can't help if we don't what things mean.

    Sorry, My latex is weak. the formula should be,

    \Sigma_{k=1}^{n} lg^{s}k (s is a constant and s>0)

    Is this is what you intended?

     \sigma_{k=1}^{n} lg^{s}k

    or this?

     g^sl \sum_{k=1}^{n}k

    .

    \sum_{k=1}^n \log_s{k} ... maybe?

    \log_s{1}+\log_s{2}+\log_s{3}+ ... + \log_s{n} = \log_s(n!)
