There is no link to Faulhaber's formula.

It is about combinatorials not sum of powers

There is no formula in terms of a quadratic function that would work for all n. This is what I meant when I said the only way to represent in terms of n is .
Look at my way to write n^3

You're summing a quadratic. If you can't see the link between that and Faulhaber's formula, then it wouldn't help if I explained it.

Re: Express a cube as sum of squares ....

When n is even =2k

n^3 = 6*(sigma(2i^2) with i=1 to k-1) +3n^2-2n

When is n is odd =2k+1

n^3=6*(sigma((2i+1)^2) with i=0 to k-1) +3n^2-2n

In Latex it will be great.

Re: Express a cube as sum of squares ....

Can you rewrite my formulas in Latex?
It would help a lot I think.

Re: Express a cube as sum of squares ....

Maybe you should grab gp (link in my .sig) and use sumformal() to prove them. (You could also use the WZ method, as found in the free (!) book A = B, but that would take much longer to learn!)

Re: Express a cube as sum of squares ....

1^2+2^2+3^2+4^2+.....n^2 which is the purpose Faulhaber`s formula is different from what I proposed

1^2+2^2+3^2+4^2+.....n^2 can be expressed as sum of 2 combinatorials C(a,3)+C(b,3)

Re: Express a cube as sum of squares ....

Did you get that there is something new in my formulas?

If you did not then ..............

Re: Express a cube as sum of squares ....

1^2+2^2+3^2+4^2+.....n^2 can be expressed as sum of 2 factorials C(a,3)+C(b,3)

For example :

1^2+2^2+3^2+4^2+.....11^2= C(12,3)+C(13,3)

General formula for n

1^2+2^2+3^2+4^2+.....n^2=C(n+1,3)+C(n+2,3)
