Hello, I would like to know if there is any book devoted to summations and product of sequences (pi notation). With theory and good exercises.

This site could PIssibly help: https://math.illinoisstate.edu/day/c...nnotation.html I thought it was "Olé Torero" !

A simple one without infinity : compute $\displaystyle \prod_{n=1}^{m} (1)^{n}$ . Last edited by idontknow; March 25th, 2019 at 04:53 PM.

I think that example came from Archbold, but I would have to look it up again. I seem to remember that professor Fort wrote about these in a book on sequences and series, I will try to dig that one out.

It wouldn't make any sense to devote a whole book to sum and product sequences. Even if you did, you'll just be repeating what's been said before.
