By an infinite series we mean a polynomial, or a sequence of terms, each of which derives from its predecessor according to a fixed formula or process; there is a one to one correspondence, consequently between the terms of the series and the set of positive integers 1,2,----,n,----. Summation means the finding of a finite expression equivalent numerically to the given series; known functions only may occur, connected by a fixed number of steps; such a closed expression is called the "sum" of the series.
