I apologize  for the misunderstanding, the series is not a power series 
but, it is a series obtained when solving a PDE using the seperation of 
variables method, the lamda's are the ordered pair of eigenvalues with 
Im[lamda[[1]]]<Im[lamda[[2]]....etc

I want to do something similar, but I want to expand it using BesselI 
function if possible, much in the vein given here
http://functions.wolfram.com/ElementaryFunctions/Sinh/06/06/0001/

I was not aware of the new symbol, thank you i will try and investigate 
further.

Above all

Thank you for your response Jens
