Description
From this ask.sagemath.org question:
sage: n = var('n') sage: sum(1/((2*n-1)^2*(2*n+1)^2*(2*n+3)^2), n, 0, oo) 3/256*pi^2 - 1/32
The correct answer is 3/256*pi^2.
We should report this to maxima:
(%i10) load(simplify_sum); (%o10) /tmpbig/burcin/sage-5.4/local/share/maxima/5.26.0/share/contrib/solve_r\ ec/simplify_sum.mac (%i11) simplify_sum(sum(1/((2*n-1)^2*(2*n+1)^2*(2*n+3)^2), n, 0, inf)); 2 %pi 2 ---- - 4 %pi 2 (%o11) ---- + -------- 128 128

This is not a useful commit, unfortunately, because this depends on #13973 which isn't in 6.3.beta2, as far as I can tell. I just wasted a lot of time discovering this, and I don't have enough git prowess to figure out how to "merge" this into that ticket's tree.
comment:12 follow-up: ↓ 13 Changed 2 months ago by tscrim
git merge trac u/pbruin/13973-maxima_update or whatever your remote for trac is (the other likely one is origin).

git merge trac u/pbruin/13973-maxima_update or whatever your remote for trac is (the other likely one is origin).
Apparently my remote is indeed trac but this command doesn't work, nor do I have any idea what the branch is since that ticket seems to have a branch called "a130eed".
Okay, the following sequence worked:
$ git fetch trac refs/heads/u/pbruin/13973-maxima_update:refs/remotes/trac/u/pbruin/13973-maxima_update $ git merge trac/u/pbruin/13973-maxima_update
This is so frustrating compared to the old system.

Ack sorry, I meant git pull trac u/pbruin/13973-maxima_update (which, in effect, combines those two) (also in case you are unaware, you can also delete the temp branch by git branch -D name/of/branch).

- Reviewers changed from Jeroen Demeyer to Jeroen Demeyer, Karl-Dieter Crisman

Okay, finally I got it all working and positive review!

Thanks. Sorry about mixing my git commands up!

I can confirm this is true in Maxima 5.28.0 as well. This is now Maxima artifact 3587514.
