    Sum of a series

    I'm trying to find the value of the following series

    \sum _{n=1}^{\infty } \frac{1}{n}\left(\frac{np}{p+n}\right)^{n+1}

    where 0<p<1. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Even here the problem hasn't be solved. With the fact that 0<p<1, I guess you work on probabilities. Maybe you don't have to compute the sum but only establish some properties.
