Some Inequalities and Asymptotics for a Weighted Alternate Binomial Sum

J. C. S. de Miranda

Abstract


We establish strict inequality bounds for the binomial sums $\sum_{i=0}^n {n\choose i} \frac{(-1)^i}{2i+1}$ and prove the asymptotic result: $$\sum_{i=0}^n {n\choose i} \frac{(-1)^i}{2i+1} \sim \sqrt{\frac{\pi}{2}} \frac{1}{\sqrt{2n+1}}, \mbox{ as } n\to \infty.$$
