11.6 Absolute Convergence and the Ratio and Root Test 1. Absolute Convergence Defnition 1.1. A series a n is called absolutely convergent if the series | a n | converges. Example 1.1. ± n =1 ( - 1) n n 2 Remarks 1.1. (1) -| a n |≤ a n ≤| a n | ,so 0 a n + | a n |≤ 2 | a n | (2) If ± | a n | converges, then . (3) If ± a n converges, then . Defnition 1.2. A series a n is called conditionally convergent if the series a n converges, but the series | a n | diverges. Example 1.2. (problem 12) Determine if the series is absolutely convergent, condi- tionally convergent or divergent. ± n =1 sin 4 n 4 n 1
