**MultiSum**: A Mathematica package for proving hypergeometric multi-sum identities¶

This package is part of the RISCErgoSum bundle. See Download and Installation.

## Short Description¶

`MultiSum`

is a Mathematica package for proving hypergeometric multi-sum
identities. It uses an efficient generalization of Sister Celine’s
technique to find a homogeneous polynomial recurrence relation for the
sum.

The package has been developed by Kurt Wegschaider, a former member of the RISC Combinatorics group.
