(1) Find the sum:

Consider this as a function of (note the negative sign in front of the term in

I presume is a mistake), the derivative of this is:

which is a geometric series and it converges for .

So write down the sum of this last series, then integrate with the constant

of integration set so that the integral is zero for , and that

is your answer (it looks like (d) to me but you will need to check).
