But, I need to take the derivative of the summation and hence do not mind making approximations if that helps get a simple looking derivative (the derivative is part of a first order condition and hence I've to substitute the derivative in an equation & solve for x). The hypergeometricPFQ is not suited for that.

Hi, Patrik or Kartik,

I know that the above expression is the same as
Integral[((1+x)^q - 1)/x]

So de derivative should equal ((1+x)^q-1)/x.

Does this expression suit your needs?

If not, I'm totally confused, sorry.

Peter
