We have: when

Now integrate:

Hence: for . it follows then, by substituting that

Because we have: - Jan 26th 2011, 06:33 PMKrizalid
when i saw first this problem, i got beaten, but i tried later, and i think i consider my solution a bit brute. (Evilgrin)

I propose a solution using Cauchy multiplication. Consider:

Now consider the inner sum in the following way:

Where on the third step we shifted the index for the sum on the right.

Your sum is a special case of the above and occurs when x = 1/2.
