Hi everyone,

Does anyone know how Mathematica evaluates the function PolyLog[2,-5R]?

As far as I knew, PolyLog[n,z] is only valid for |z| < 1 (else the series PolyLog[n,z]=sum^infinity_k=1((z^k)/(k^n)) becomes divergent), but I can plot this function in Mathematica for the values -0.2 < R < 1.

How does it do this?

Thanks!
