I noticed a possible pattern.

Now it appears

The continuum sum up to z-1 of exp^[n](x) is given by

CS [ exp^[n](x) , z-1] = P_n(x) + F_n(x)

where F_n is 2pi i periodic and P_n is a polynomial of degree (at most) n.

I guess there is a simple reason for it.
Right ??

What if n is not an integer ? say n = 3/2 ?

Does that imply P_{3/2}(x) =< O( x^{3/2} ) ??

The answer appears to be simple.

That is considering we work with the same continuum sum.

Within an analytic region :
Let r > 0.
exp^[1+r](x) = exp^[r](0) + F(exp(x))

where F(0) = 0 and is analytic.

Therefore the continuum sum CS is given by

T_r(x) = CS exp^[1+r](x) = exp^[r](0) x + G(exp(x)).

Therefore T(x) - T(x - 2pi i) = exp^[r](0) * 2 pi i.

One wonders what happens with r < 0.

I will post a related thread.
I have some ideas but little time.

Notice the counterintuitive nature

sum [ f(x) - f(x - period f) ] =/= sum [ f(x) ] - sum[ f(x - period f) =/= 0.
even if f(x) - f(x - period f) = 0 and sum [ 0 ] = 0.
