*Definition:*
If `x` is a variable, `F` is a formula and `T` is a term, then
the following is a term with bound variable `x`:

(sum_{x, F}T).

The value of this term is 0, if `F` does not hold for any `x`;
otherwise it is, for every `x` that satisfies `F`,
the sum of the value of `T` and of the value of the term for all
other `x`:

( forallx: ~F)=> ( sum_{x, F}T) = 0;( forally:F[x<-y]=> ( sum_{x, F}T) =T[x<-y] + (sum_{x, F /\ x != y}T)).
