P P an

1. P

Suppose that

P an , bn are series with positive terms. If limn bn = C for some 0 < C < , then

an and bn either both converge or both diverge.

2. If limn abnn = 0 and

P P

bn converges, then an converges.

3. If limn abnn = and

P P

bn diverges, then an diverges.

n2 +ln(n)3 n2 1

Example: If an = n4 +sin(n) , then let bn = n4 = n2 . Then

lim

= lim = lim = 1,

n bn n n4 + sin(n) n 1 + sin(n)/n2

P P

so an converges because bn converges.

Good news: The dominant term is still the only thing that matters! Heres why, in a nutshell:

1. ln(n)K < n (for large n, given any K, > 0).

2. nK < (1 + )n (for large n, given any K, > 0).

P ln5 (n)

Example: Looking at n2 , we know that ln5 (n) < n for large values of n (in particular, when

n > 3.44 1015 ), so we can choose bn = n2n = n3/2

1

. Then

lim an /bn = lim = lim = 0.

n n n2 n n

P ln5 (n)

1/n3/2 converges,P

P

Since so does n2 .

Example 2: Looking at n2 /2n , we know that n2 < 1.5n for large

P values of n (when n 13),Pso2choose

bn = 1.5n /2n . Then limn an /bn = limn n2 /1.5n = 0. Since 1.5n /2n converges, so does n /2n .

Find an appropriate series bn to compare each of the following series to, and determine whether they converge

or diverge:

Warning!

If terms in the numerator or denominator are cancelling out with each other, watch out! You might have to

do some extra algebra before using the comparison test. Try to show that the following series converge:

Bonus

1. Show that 1 + 1/1! + 1/2! + 1/3! + . . . converges. (Hint: 3 2 > 2 2, 4 3 2 > 2 2 2 . . .)

P P

Limit comparison with bn = 1/2n : limn 2n /n! = 0, so n=0 1/n! converges because n=0 1/2n

converges.

X xn

2. For what values of x does the series converge?

n=0

n!

All values of x. (Limit comparison with bn = 1/2n will again work)

1

3. If we integrate both sides of 1x = 1 + x + x2 + x3 + . . ., we get ln(1 x) = x + x2 /2 + x3 /3 + . . .

(this actually works!) For what values of x does the series representing ln(1 x) converge?

The series converges for 1 x < 1.
