Question: How do I invert (revert) the following power series?

Let w =f(z) = sum of z^(k+a) / (k + a)

where k= 0 to infinity and a is a nonzero parameter.

I need to find the inverse of this series, z = g(w). The powseries examples in Maple Help don't help. They don't work on my example, with a symbolic variable, a, stuck in there.  I hope that if I see about 7 or 8 terms of the inversion, I will get the general pattern.  I have tried to compute the inverse directly from the Lagrange Inversion Formula, but the complexity always grows too quickly for me to complete the solution, no matter which shortcut I try to take.

Please Wait...
