Lesson 9.5: Alternating Series, Absolute Convergence and Conditional Convergence
Theorem 8: The Alternating Series Test (Leibniz’s Theorem)

The series
  1
n 1
n 1
un  u1  u2  u3  u4  ... converges if all three of the following are satisfied.
1. The un ' s are all positive.
2. un  un 1 for all n
3. lim un  0
n
Absolute Convergence
A series  an converges absolutely if the corresponding series of absolute values  an converges.
A series that converges, but does not converge absolutely, converges conditionally.
Determine whether the series converges absolutely, converges conditionally or diverges. Give reasons for your
answer. Find a bound for the truncation error after 99 terms.

Radius of Convergence
To determine to what values each power series converge, we use one of three tests: Geometric, Root, or Ratio.
When using the Root or Ratio test, you must check the endpoints individually because the test is inconclusive at
 1.
In Exercises 35-50, find (a) the interval of convergence of the series. For what values of x does the series
converge (b) absolutely, (c) conditionally. Also, identify the Radius of Convergence.
