(b) Theorem 3.39 can be applied here too, but this requires the fact lim n 1 n n ! = 0, which needs justification. Alternatively, one can apply the ratio test to prove that the radius of convergence is equal to . Indeed, for any fixed number z , lim n (2 z ) n +1 ( n + 1)! n ! (2 z ) n = lim n 2 z n + 1 = 0 . (c) lim sup n n q 2 n /n 2 = 2 / lim n n 2 /n = 2, since lim n n 2 /n = exp(lim n 2 log n n ) = e = 1, so the radius of convergence is equal to 1 / 2 by Theorem 3.39. (d) lim sup n n q n 3 / 3 n = lim n n n 3 / 3 = 1 / 3 by the same reasoning as in (c), hence the radius of convergence is equal to 3 by Theorem 3.39. 2. (a) First note that x/ (1+ x ) 1 / 2 whenever x 1. So, if the sequence ( a n ) has infinitely many terms greater than or equal to 1, then the sequence (...
