Infinite Series

An infinite series has an infinite number of terms.


The sum of the first n terms, Sn , is called a partial sum.
If Sn tends to a limit as n tends to infinity, the limit is called the sum to infinity of the
series.

Arithmetic series

As n tends to infinity, Sn tends to


The sum to infinity for an arithmetic series is undefined.
Geometric series

When r > 1, rn tends to infinity as n tends to infinity.


When r < 1, rn tends to zero as n tends to infinity.
