Re: Computing Complex Series Solution using Mathematica


Hi,

can you tell us *what* you plan to do ?
Sinh[lambda*x]
is no complex series, if you whish to use the series expansion
Sinh[y]:> Sum[y^(2n + 1)/(2n + 1)!, {n, 0, Infinity}]

you should do that, if you use Sum[] Mathematica will simplify it to 
Sinh[x], if you whant to keep the series form, you should use the new symbol 
"sum" instead of Sum in the expression above. Anyway it seems to be better 
to work with a sum Sinh[] and not with the power series.

Regards

  Jens
