Seems that Summation can not be interchanged and the above is wrong. Sigh.

The following should work for numerical inputs (though gives no symbolic
solution), using Maple's syntax:

1/A*t+ Sum((-1)^n/(A^(n+1))*t^n*beta^n*
k = 0 .. n),n = 1 .. infinity)

I have not cared for the special case of eta = some positive integer.
