    Fourier series

    Hey guys.
    I wrote the problem in word, it's much easier for me
    Thanks in advance.

    You'll be famous if you succeed. \sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac1{n^3} is Apéry's constant, for which there is no known closed form. Even less is known about \sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac1{n^5}.

    Well, the question is find the sum of the series \sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac1{n^5}, are you sure that can not be done?

    He is sure. And so am I.

    Some research for you to do:

    Riemann zeta function.

    \zeta(2n)=\frac{(-1)^{k+1}(2\pi)^{2n}B_{2n}}{2(2n)!}.

    Very little is known about \zeta(2n + 1) apart from what has already been mentioned for the case n = 1.

    Just in case the original poster want to see \zeta(2n) derivation, it is here.

    I think you might need to combine the Fourier series using the convolution theorem for Fourier series, though if it will give anything usefull I don't know.
