Summary of Convergence Tests for Series and Solved Problems
Integral Test Ratio Test Root Test Comparison Theorem for Series Alternating Series

Test Test Quantity Converges if Diverges if Ratio q < 1 q > 1
Root r < 1 r > 1 Integral Int < ∞ Int = ∞ The above test quantities can be used to study the convergence of the series S. In the Integral Test we assume that there is a decreasing non-negative function f such that ak = f(k) for all k. The Test Quantity of the Integral Test is the improper integral of this function. Mika Seppälä: Series

Comparison Test and the Alternating Series Test
Assume that 0≤ ak ≤ bk for all k. If the series Alternating Series Test 1 2 Mika Seppälä: Series

Error Estimates Error Estimate by the Integral Test
Error of the approximation by the Mth partial sum. Error Estimates by the Alternating Series Test This means that the error when estimating the sum of a converging alternating series is at most the absolute value of the first term left out. Mika Seppälä: Series

Overview of Problems 1 2 3 Mika Seppälä: Series

Comparison Test 1 Solution Mika Seppälä: Series

Comparison Test 2 Solution Mika Seppälä: Series

The Comparison Test 3 Solution The series a) needs not converge.
Example: Mika Seppälä: Series

The Comparison Test 3 Solution (cont’d) The series b) does converge.
<1 Mika Seppälä: Series

The Integral Test 4 Solution Mika Seppälä: Series

Comparison Test From Applications of Differentiation. 5 Solution
Mika Seppälä: Series

Partial Fraction Computation
6 Solution These terms cancel. Mika Seppälä: Series

Comparison Test 7 Solution Mika Seppälä: Series

The Integral and the Comparison Tests
8 Solution Mika Seppälä: Series

The Integral Test 9 Solution
Hence the series diverges by the Integral Test. Mika Seppälä: Series

The Integral Test 10 Solution
Computing 1000th partial sum by Maple we get the approximation The precise value of the above infinite sum is π2/6≈ Mika Seppälä: Series

The Comparison Test 11 Solution
You can show this also directly by the Integral Test without referring to the Harmonic Series. Mika Seppälä: Series

The Comparison Test 12 Solution Mika Seppälä: Series

The Alternating Series Test
13 Solution Mika Seppälä: Series

The Alternating Series Test
