Recitation Problems – Week 2440:127 – Fall 2011 – S. J. OrfanidisPlease do the following problems from your textbook during your recitation session, including any addi-tional problems given to you by your TA.1. The harmonic series is deFned as the sum:hn=1+12+13+···+1n,n≥1The series diverges, but slowly, like ln(n). A fairly good approximation tohnis given by the formula:fn=γ+ln(n)whereγ=0.5772156649...is the so-called Euler constant. An improved approximation is given bygn=γ+ln(n)+12nUse the functioncumsumto calculatehnforn
