# Algebra: Convergence of Series

Not what you're looking for?

Consider the series n = 1 to infinity 1/( 1 + n^2 x)

(a) For what values of x in R does the series converge absolutely?

(b) On what intervals of R does it converge uniformly?

(c) On what intervals of R does it fail to converge uniformly?

(d) Is the series bounded on R?

Please I want detailed answers with full explanation..after all I want to learn not just have the right answer. I appreciate your help. Thanks.

a) For what values of x in R does the series converge absolutely?

Case 1. Let x= 0.
Then the series equals n so it is not convergent, abs converges or uniformly convergent.

Case 2.
Let an = 1/( 1 + n^2 x).
Now Σ|an| converges.
Now Σ|an| < Σ 1/|n²x| = 1/|x| Σ 1/n² which is ...
