Nevertheless, if the formulae (1)... would have been proven, your results could be qualified as good for the mathematical data base extension of computer algebra systems. Indeed, the internal built-in algorithms, for example, in Maple are failed to compute the sums (I)-(X) of Sect.6. ................................................................................
