The binomial transform of p-recursive sequences and the dilogarithm function. (English) Zbl 07288666
Summary: Using a generalized binomial transform and a novel binomial coefficient identity, we will show that the set of p-recursive sequences is closed under the binomial transform. Using these results, we will derive a new series representation for the dilogarithm function that converges on its domain of analyticity. Finally, we will show that this series representation results in a scheme for numerical evaluation of the dilogarithm function that is accurate, efficient, and stable.
