Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is a sum ∑? (Definition)

In mathematics, the summation, denoted $ \sum $, is the result of the addition of a series of numbers.

The symbol ∑ is called the sum operator, it is an addition calculator (finite or infinite).

How to calculate a finite sum?

In arithmetic, the summation notation $ \sum_1^n $ (with the Greek letter sigma uppercase) allows to compute a finite addition going from $ 1 $ to $ n $ with an increment of 1 (by default).

Example: The sum of the first $ 5 $ integers $$ 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 = \sum_{i=1}^{5} i $$

Sometimes the sum can be simplified with a formula:

Example: The sum of the $ n $ first integers $$ 1 + 2 + 3 + \cdots + (n-1) + n = \sum_{i=1}^{n} i = \frac{n(n+1)}{2} $$

The calculation by hand being time-consuming, some sums are interesting to learn/know.

Sometimes the sum does not converge to a value, it can diverge and not have a formula to calculate it.

How to calculate an infinie de sum?

The notation $ \sum_1^\infty $ (sometimes shortened in $ \sum $) indicates the computation of an infinite addition going from $ 1 $ to infinity $ \infty $ with an increment of 1 (by default).

Example: The sum of the inverses of the $ n $ prime squares (Basel problem) $$ \frac{1}{1^2} + \frac{1}{2^2} + \frac{1}{3^2} + \frac{1}{4^2} + \cdots = \sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{1}{n^2} = \frac{\pi^2}{6} $$

The demonstration of these sums often involves a limit calculation or a series expansion.

How to calculate a double summation?

The notation $ \sum \sum $ is read $ \sum \left( \sum \right) $ so the inner sum (inside the parenthesis) is calculated first first, before the outer sum is calculated in a second step.

How to make the Σ sum symbol?

The summation is written with the dedicated mathematical operator ∑ (Unicode U+2211) inspired from the Greek letter sigma uppercase Σ (Unicode U+03A3).

In Greek, sigma corresponds to the letter S (like the first letter of Sum).

In LaTeX, the operator is \sum
