UnderoverscriptBox[\(\[Sum]\), \(m = \(-10\)\),
\(10\)]\(\(eigenfunctionsort[n, j]\)[\([m + 11]\)]
Exp[I*2*\[Pi]*m*x/dp]\)\),{j,1,21}] // DisplayForm

does not work on my mm v. 4.0 and I'm unsure what's missing.  a table
or another Sum involving j maybe?  I'm getting a \(\) not paired error
and missing [.

but as I see it


necessarily means to take a Part of eigenfunctionsort[n, j] ; which
isn't obviously a number, list, or symbol from where I sit.
