    It is actually indeterminate

    i was looking at evaluating sigma(2,i=-1..27) and i have always wrote it as sigma(2i^0,i-1..27)=2(-1)^0+2(0)^0+2(27) but we have that 0^0 there if we count it as 1 we would have found the right summation

    usually a number to the power of 0 is always one. but not 0. 0^0 is classified as an indeterminate form
