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*
Sum(t^(1-k*(1-eta))*beta^(-k)*binomial(n,k)*(alpha*GAMMA(1-eta))^k/GAMMA(2+n-k*(1-eta)),
k = 0 .. n),n = 1 .. infinity)

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