Series - Overview Series n =1 a n Main Question: estimate value to which it converges % Converge? find exact value to which it converges Diverge? Tests: (a) Test for divergence: (page 692) if a n 6→ 0 as n → ∞ then series diverges (b) a n 0: geometric series (page 689) telescoping series (page 691) integral test (page 699) comparison test (page 705) limit comparison test (page 707) (c) a n is alternating in sign:
