What is its limit? √ sn + 1 • Theorem: Unbounded and montone sequences diverge to ∞ or −∞. • Deﬁne lim sup sn and lim inf sn . Note the diﬀerence between lim sup sn and sup{sn }. • Theorem: If lim sn is a real number or ±∞, then lim inf sn = lim sn = lim sup sn . • Theorem: If lim sup sn = lim inf sn , then lim sn exists and is equal to both. • Deﬁnition of a Cauchy sequence. • Theorem: A sequence is Cauchy iﬀ it converges. 1 1 • Use the Cauchy criterion to prove that the sequence deﬁned by sn = 1+ 2 +· · ·+ n diverges. 1 ...
