Thanks a lot Martin and Waldek,

In fact I'm looking for testing with axiom the sum that my students do.
I hope that axiom computes right (as the two M....) the most possible series.
By example students search the series bellow.

Are they all hypergeometrics ?
this means that u(n+1) / u(n) is an algébraic fraction
as (n-...)(n-...) - - - (n-...)/(n-...) - - - (n-...)

I believe yes but the cos/cosh/sin/sinh.
In this case the standard way with complex, combine and expand is right.
The very last one can be find by expand sum ... + sum ...
The only real problem is about the malicious sum ((2^((-1)^n), n)
for n even and n odd.

Am I right ?

Theses exercices have a closed form so the Gosper algorithm gives the
solution as a hypergeometric serie.

Am I right (again) ?

How can I use the GosperPackage :
I don't know how to use the signature for the command

GosperMethod (Q, V, ()-> V) -> Union (Q, "failed")
++ GospersMethod(b, n, new) returns a rational function
++ \spad{rf(n)} such that \spad{a(n) * rf(n)} is the indefinite
++ sum of \spad{a(n)}
++ with respect to upward difference on \spad{n}, i.e.
++ \spad{a(n+1) * rf(n+1) - a(n) * rf(n) = a(n)},

The package is :

GosperSummationMethod(E, V, R, P, Q): Exports == Impl where
E: OrderedAbelianMonoidSup
V: OrderedSet
R: IntegralDomain
P: PolynomialCategory(R, E, V)
Q: Join(RetractableTo Fraction Integer, Field with
(coerce: P -> %; numer : % -> P; denom : % -> P))

Then can I recognize << with my eyes >> the hypergeometric serie ?

The easiest hypergeometric serie are 0F0 (x)=exp x and 1F0 (a, x)=(1-x)^(-a).

For others functions must I cut the hypergeometric serie in order to recognize
atan, exp and so. Is it possible ?

The main problem is perhaps to simplify (n+1)!/n!,
but an expand/rewrite function can do it, no ?

Martin, I'm sorry but I don't understand what your package do,
And I don't find your package on my silver axiom.

My aim is to force axiom to compute theses exercices about series.

Thanks a lot if you accept to drive me inside theses algorithms.
