The brute force answer involves for loops or apply functions, with or without defining your own functions for calculating terms. More optimized methods usually require understanding the specific structure of the summations and unwinding them with functions like expand.grid. For more specific help, read the Posting Guide (which among other things warns you to post in plain text) and post a specific example of the type of problem that you want to solve.
