Frequently Asked Questions

When to use the ratio test?

Ratio test is one of the tests used to determine the convergence or divergence of infinite series. You can even use the ratio test to find the radius and interval of convergence of power series! Many students have problems of which test to use when trying to find whether the series converges or diverges.

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.

What is ratio test?

In mathematics, the ratio test is a test (or "criterion") for the convergence of a series where each term is a real or complex number and an is nonzero when n is large. The test was first published by Jean le Rond d'Alembert and is sometimes known as d'Alembert's ratio test or as the Cauchy ratio test.

What is convergence ratio?

convergence ratio. [kən′vər·jəns ‚rā·shō] (optics) The ratio of the tangent of the angle between a meridional ray and the optical axis after it passes through an optical system to the tangent of the angle between the ray and the axis before it passes through the system.
