SumTools[Hypergeometric][IsHypergeometricTerm] - test if a given expression is a hypergeometric term

Calling Sequence

IsHypergeometricTerm(H, n, certificate)

Parameters

H

-

function of n

n

-

variable

certificate

-

(optional) name; assigned the computed certificate

Description

• 

The IsHypergeometricTerm(H,n) command returns true if Hn is a hypergeometric term of n. Otherwise, it returns false.

  

A function H is hypergeometric of n if Hn+1Hn=Rn, a rational function of n. Rn is the certificate of Hn. If the third optional argument is included, it is assigned the certificate Rn.
