This paper deals with the summation problem of power series of the form Sba (f; x) = ∑a ≤ k ≤ b f(k) xk, where 0≤ a < b ≤ ∞, and {f(k)} is a given sequence of numbers with k Є [a, b) or f(t) is a differentiable function defined on [a, b). We present a symbolic summation operator with its various expansions, and construct several summation formulas with estimable remainders for Sba (f; x), by the aid of some classical interpolation series due to Newton, Gauss and Everett, respectively.
