Kummer's transformation of series

In mathematics in the field of numerical analysis, Kummer's transformation of series is a method used to accelerate the convergence of an infinite series. The method was first suggested by Ernst Kummer in 1837. Let A = ∑ n = 1 ∞ a n be an infinite sum whose value we wish to compute, let B = ∑ n = 1 ∞ b n be an infinite sum with comparable terms whose value is known. If lim n → ∞ a n b n = γ ≠ 0 A is more computed as A = γ B + ∑ n = 1 ∞ a n. We apply the method to accelerate the Leibniz formula for π: 1 − 1 3 + 1 5 − 1 7 + 1 9 − ⋯ = π 4. First group terms in pairs as 1 − − + ⋯ = 1 − 2 = 1 − 2 A where A = ∑ n = 1 ∞ 1 16 n 2 − 1 Let B = ∑ n = 1 ∞ 1 4 n 2 − 1 = 1 3 + 1 15 + ⋯ = 1 2 − 1 6 + 1 6 − 1 10 + ⋯, a telescoping series with sum ​1⁄2. In this case γ = lim n → ∞ 1 16 n 2 − 1 1 4 n 2 − 1 = 4 n 2 − 1 16 n 2 − 1 = 1 4 and Kummer's transformation gives A = 1 4 ⋅ 1 2 + ∑ n = 1 ∞ 1 16 n 2 − 1; this simplifies to A = 1 8 − 3 4 ∑ n = 1 ∞ 1.
