hello,
I am a problem :
I defined ->
\!\(\[Psi][x_, y_] := \(1\/4\) a\^2 -
x\^2 - \(\(8
a\^2\)\/\[Pi]\^3\) \(\[Sum]\+\(n = \
0\)\%\[Infinity]\(\((\(-1\))\)\^n\/\((2 n + 1)\)\^3\) \(Cosh[k[n]*y]\ \
Cos[k[n]*x]\)\/Cosh[\(1\/2\) k[n]\ b]\)\)
and tried to compute ->
D[\[Psi][x, y], y] /. y -> 0.9 /. x -> 0.8
the answer I got was ->
General::"ivar": "\!\(0.9`\) is not a valid variable."
General::"stop": "Further output of \!\(General :: \"ivar\"\) will be \
suppressed during this calculation."
\!\(\(-\(\(32\ \(\[Sum]\+\(n = \
0\)\%\[Infinity]\[PartialD]\_0.9`\(\(\((\(-1\))\)\^n\ \((Cosh[
k[n]\ 0.9`]\ Cos[
k[n]\ 0.8`])\)\)\/\(\((2\ n + 1)\)\^3\ Cosh[
1\/2\ k[n]\ b]\)\)\)\)\/\[Pi]\^3\)\)\)
But when I replaced the sums limit from infinity to 99
there was no problem and I got a numerical answer.
Any ideas why ?
Thank you , Doron .
