zeilberger
is a implementation of Zeilberger's algorithm
for definite hypergeometric summation, and also
Gosper's algorithm for indefinite hypergeometric
summation.
zeilberger
makes use of the "filtering" optimization method developed by Axel Riese.
zeilberger
was developed by Fabrizio Caruso.

zeilberger
implements Gosper's algorithm for indefinite hypergeometric summation.
Given a hypergeometric term F_k in k we want to find its hypergeometric
anti-difference, that is, a hypergeometric term f_k such that
F_k = f_(k+1) - f_k.

zeilberger
implements Zeilberger's algorithm for definite hypergeometric summation.
Given a proper hypergeometric term (in n and k)
F_(n,k)
and a positive integer d we want to find a d-th order linear
recurrence with polynomial coefficients (in n) for
F_(n,k)
and a rational function R in n and k such that
a_0 F_(n,k) + ... + a_d F_(n+d),k = Delta_k(R(n,k) F_(n,k)),
where Delta_k is the k-forward difference operator, i.e., Delta_k(t_k) := t_(k+1) - t_k.

Returns the hypergeometric anti-difference of F_k, if it exists.
Otherwise AntiDifference
returns no_hyp_antidifference
.
Categories: Package zeilberger
Returns the rational certificate R(k) for F_k, that is,
a rational function such that
F_k = R(k+1) F_(k+1) - R(k) F_k,
if it exists.
Otherwise, Gosper
returns no_hyp_sol
.
Categories: Package zeilberger
Returns the summmation of F_k from k = a to k = b
if F_k has a hypergeometric anti-difference.
Otherwise, GosperSum
returns nongosper_summable
.

Categories: Package zeilberger
Attempts to find a d-th order recurrence for F_(n,k).
The algorithm yields a sequence [s_1, s_2, ..., s_m] of solutions. Each solution has the form
[R(n, k), [a_0, a_1, ..., a_d]].
parGosper
returns []
if it fails to find a recurrence.
Categories: Package zeilberger
Attempts to compute the indefinite hypergeometric summation of F_(n,k).
Zeilberger
first invokes Gosper
, and if that fails to find a solution, then invokes
parGosper
with order 1, 2, 3, ..., up to MAX_ORD
.
If Zeilberger finds a solution before reaching MAX_ORD
,
it stops and returns the solution.
The algorithms yields a sequence [s_1, s_2, ..., s_m] of solutions. Each solution has the form
[R(n,k), [a_0, a_1, ..., a_d]].
Zeilberger
returns []
if it fails to find a solution.
Zeilberger
invokes Gosper
only if Gosper_in_Zeilberger
is true
.
