Abstract: An equivalent series for the slowly convergent series

$\displaystyle \sum\limits_{n = 1}^\infty {\left[ {\smallint _{ - \pi /2}^{\pi /2}{{\cos }^\alpha }\theta \cos (n \in \sin \theta )} \right]} {}^2/n$

which arises in antenna theory is obtained. The new form is found to consist of two rapidly convergent series for small $ \in $.
