Sum of series and recurrence relation

I need the sum of the following series.

i pow 2 = i *i or i^2
so T(i) = i ^N / 4 ^i
T(i)= (i pow N)/(4 pow i)

I need the sum of T(0)+T(1)+T(2)......inf

Sum of T(i) where i = 0 to inf.

How do i go about this. Do we have to use integrals ?

If a+b=1 and T(1)=1
how do i solve T(n)=T(an)+T(bn) + cn where c is a constant.
