How to find the limit of this convergent sum?
20180327 11:25:04
I have a sum $\sum_{i=0}^{\infty} i^{k} D^{i}$, where $k = \frac{1}{2} n$ for some $n \in \mathbb{N}$ and $1>D>0$. The ratio test proves that this sum converges, but I struggle finding a closed form for the limit. Any suggestions how to get there?
The explicit expression for the sum is:
$$
\sum_{i=0}^{\infty} i^{k} D^{i}=\frac{\sum_{i=0}^{k1}A_i^{k}D^{i+1}}{(1D)^{k+1}},
$$
where $A_i^k$ are the Eulerian numbers. Can be easily proved by induction.
