Polylogarithm Function

Here are some notes from my program XPCalc - Extra Precision Floating-Point Calculator http://www.oocities.org/hjsmithh/download.html#XPCalc :

Polylog(s, x) = Polylogarithm(s, x):

The Polylog(s, x) function is equal to x * Lerch(x, s, 1). See the Lerch Transcendent Phi Function Lerch(x, s, a). When s = 2, this is the Dilog(x) function.

Polylog(s, x) = Sum {k = 1, 2, ...}[x^k / k^s],

See: Polylogarithm -- From MathWorld
And: Wolfram Function Evaluation -- PolyLog
