I am trying to figure out how to use a Mathematica package that contains the command FactorialSimplify. In the book "A=B" there are several references to a Mathematica command called FactorialSimplify. The book says that the command can be found in the package DiscreteMath`RSolve`. I've loaded this package and I've not found the command, and the help command just returns that FactorialSimplify is a global variable. Is there anything that you might know about this package or this particular command that might help or can you point me somewhere that I might be able to find this information? Any help that you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Amy Hutchison
