*recurrent sums*, where the reciprocals are replaced by arbitrary sequences. We introduce a toolbox of formulas for the manipulation of such sums. We begin by developing variation formulas that allow the variation of a recurrent sum of order

*m*to be expressed in terms of lower order recurrent sums. We then proceed to derive theorems (which we will call inversion formulas) which show how to interchange the order of summation in a multitude of ways. Later, we introduce a set of new partition identities in order to then prove a reduction theorem which permits the expression of a recurrent sum in terms of a combination of non-recurrent sums. Finally, we use these theorems to derive new results for multiple zeta star values and recurrent sums of powers.

*multiple sums*, where the reciprocals are replaced with arbitrary sequences. We develop formulae to help with manipulating such sums. We develop variation formulae that express the variation of multiple sums in terms of lower order multiple sums. Additionally, we derive a set of partition identities that we use to prove a reduction theorem that expresses multiple sums as a combination of simple sums. We present a variety of applications including applications concerning polynomials and MZVs such as generating functions and expressions for and . Finally, we establish the connection between multiple sums and a type of sums called recurrent sums. By exploiting this connection, we provide additional partition identities for odd and even partitions.
