Hello,
I would be happy If someone could help me solving this problem: I'm trying to plot an Expected utility function, in particular the St Petersburg Paradox function but comparing with excel I did non get write results. The function is the following: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Petersburg_paradox#Expected_utility_theory . This is what I tried to write, with w=100 and c=10. Plot[\!\(
\*UnderoverscriptBox[\(\[Sum]\), \(i = 0\), \(n\)]
\*FractionBox[\(Log[100 +
\*SuperscriptBox[\(2\), \(n\)] - 1] - Log[100]\),
SuperscriptBox[\(2\), \(n + 1\)]]\), {n, 0, 30}].
Thanks
