Consider $$h(z)=\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{(z-2)^n}{n}.$$ I wish to find an expression for $h$ as an elementary function. This question has me stumped. I considered another function, $$f(z)=\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} n(z-2)^n.$$ This is much easier to express as an elementary function, as $$f(z)=\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} n(z-2)^n=(z-2)\frac{d}{dz}\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} (z-2)^n=\frac{z+3}{(z+2)^2}.$$...
