I will take your "represent" as "determine". That is I take your
question to be how to find the maximum of the partial sums that
are (in principle) formed when evaluating
Sum[a[k],{k,i,j}]
If I have this correct, I suggest
Max@Accumulate@Table[a[k], {k,i,j}]
Evaluation of Sum only returns the final sum not any of the
intermediate sums (which Mathematica may not actually compute).
I've used Table to create each of the a[k] terms and Accumulate
to compute the partial sums.
