Hi Evanescence,

Note that only K depends on z, therefore, only this function needs 


First we create the x arguments for the terms that will be multiplied by 

2 and 4. Then we apply the function K to these values, make a list of 

all terms, flatten the list for summation and sum it:



int=(1/6){K[x,0],(2 K[x,#]&/@x2),(4 K[x,#]&/@x4),K[x,32]} // Flatten // 


hope this helps, Daniel
