Fourier Analysis

Proof of sum of a given infinite series of constants (closed form).

The sum of the infinite series, 1/2^2 - 2/3^2 + 3/4^2 - 4/5^2 + ... is given as pi^2/12 - log 2 on pages 64-65 in the book "Summation of Series" by L. B. W. Jolley, 2nd ed., 1961, Dover Pubs. Inc. (the ^ symbol denotes exponentiation in the above series and sum). For most of the series in his book, he lists a source (referen
