Hi, how can you in maple take the derivitve of a function that consists of sum terms in it? (preferable in document mode)
For example I have this expression (from a math book):
f = N+k*(sum(ln(x__i-B), i = 1 .. N))-N*k*(sum((x__i-B)^k*ln(x__i-B), i = 1 .. N))/(sum((x__i-B)^k, i = 1 .. N))
What I then want to do is to derive this function with respect to k.
However just writing the expression like above it seems like mable doesn't keep the summation terms but evaluates them in a sense. So not sure how to set it up correctly in order to make the derivitive.
Taking the derivitive of f with respect to k, the solution should give something like this:
