Selected paper from DocServer
Jonathan M. Borwein, David Borwein


In the course of a study of chemical lattice sums [1] the authors considered sums such as (1.1) ∑′ (- 1) n+m+k ( n2 + m2 + k2) -1/2, the summation being over all non-zero integer triples. Such "sums" occur naturally in the study of crystal potentials. For example, (1.1) is meant to measure the potential at the origin of an infinite cubic crystal with unit Coulomb charges at each integer lattice point. As such the sum is considered to represent an electrochemical constant (Madelung's constant) for sodium chloride. An excellent account of such lattice sums can be found in Glasser and Zucker's recent survey [3].


Membership to CARMA offers many benefits and is available by invitation to all University of Newcastle academic staff. Associate membership, also by invitation, is available to external researchers and practitioners for three-year renewable terms. Associate members are expected to visit CARMA with some frequency, typically for a total of three to four weeks in a year, and to be involved in one or more ongoing research projects with CARMA members. CARMA is able to assist with the travel and living costs of such visits.
