Proof. If p 1, the series diverges by comparing it with the harmonic series which we already know diverges. Now suppose that p>1. The function f(x) = 1=xp is a decreasing function, so to determine the convergence of the series we’ll determine the convergence of the corresponding integral.

Series and Convergence We know a Taylor Series for a function is a polynomial approximations for that function. This week, we will see that within a given range of x values the Taylor series converges to the function itself. In order to fully understand what that means we must understand the notion of a limit, and convergence.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the series convergent or divergent?

Formally, the infinite series is convergent if the sequence of partial sums. (1) is convergent. Conversely, a series is divergent if the sequence of partial sums is divergent.

What is the P - Series test for convergence?

P-series Test. The p-series is a power series of the form or , where p is a positive real number and k is a positive integer. The p-series test determines the nature of convergence of a p-series as follows: The p-series converges if and diverges if . See more Calculus topics.

What is the limit test for convergence?

In mathematics, the limit comparison test (LCT) (in contrast with the related direct comparison test) is a method of testing for the convergence of an infinite series.

How do you find the interval of convergence?

To determine the interval of convergence we first find the ratio by the ratio test. The expression we get after the ratio test is the applied to the inequality. The values we get are checked for convergence or divergence by various tests. Hence we can find the interval of convergence.
