I'm new to Mathematica and I need to solve a summation in which each
term has a different  number of multiple integrals. To be more specific,
my n-th term should look like:

 g[n] NIntegrate[ f[n], {x1, a,b},{x2, x1, b}, ... , {xn, xn-1,b}];

a,b are constants and f[n] is an expression that involves x1, x2, ...,
xn (so each term has a different number of integration variables), with
n going from 1 to N. I could define all the N terms of my summation but
since N is really large, it's unfeasible to do it manually. Is there any
way of defining a function in Mathematica to build and evaluate each
term given n? I could also write a script not in Mathematica to build
all the terms and save them on a file to be read from Mathematica, but
is it possible to do it in Mathematica (to use string manipulation to
"build" the n-th term and then evaluate it)?
