Question: unable to compute coeff

Why the command


coeff(sum(x^i,i=0..999)^500,x,2) prints


Error, unable to compute coeff??


I believe, that memory/cpu issues are not a relevant answer here.



coeff(sum(x^i,i=0..998)^500,x,2) gives the correct result.


coeff(sum(x^i,i=0..998)^500,x,200) is ok.

How do I compute coeffs of longer sums?Or why this limitation is imposed by Maple Server?

Please Wait...
