Hello,
I am trying to use the
Sum function in Mathematica and I have encountered a problem. It seems
that the Sum command will sum up to 1 million numbers, but fails if I try
to Sum over a million numbers. For example, the command Sum[N[1/k], {k, 1, 1000000}] works fine, but if I try Sum[N[1/k], {k, 1, 1000001}] it fails.
Is there anyway to fix this?
I have already thought to try the NSum function, however, for my current problem, using the NSum function will not work.
