The paper describes a new method of computing the infinite series which arise in the calculation of standard graphs in the resistivity method. It is shown that, by using finite forward differences of higher orders and repeated summations by parts, the convergence of the potential and resistivity series can be improved appreciably. The procedure allows calculations with any degree of accuracy and with a substantial savings in computational labor. A correct estimate of the truncation errors involved may easily be determined.
