Under [HyperDoc] Topics --> Calculus --> Series

I found the example confusing at first.
I think it should begin with::

 (1) -> S := series 'n

So that the series looks more like the $S_n$ I see in my
Calculus textbook:

$$
  S = \Sigma_{n = 1}^{\infty}{a_n}
$$

$$
  S_n = \Sigma_{k = 1}^{n}{a_k}
$$

$$
  lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} S_n = S
$$
