Overview of the sumtools Package
List of sumtools Package Commands
The sumtools package is a collection of commands for computing indefinite and definite sums. The principal routines are Gosper's algorithm for indefinite summation and Zeilberger's algorithm, and extensions to both algorithms by Koepf. Note, setting infolevel[sum] to be 1,2,3 will cause some diagnostics to be printed out.
Each command in the sumtools package can be accessed by using either the long form or the short form of the command name in the command calling sequence.
The following is a list of available commands.
