# Proving the Root Test

Not what you're looking for?

A) Prove root test " lim(sqrt|An)|)=L as n goes to infinity" assuming ratio test "lim(|An+1)|/|A n|)=L as n goes to infinity"

ps. {An} is a sequence of non-zero complex numbers

b) Prove that although the following power series have R=1 sum(nz^n) does not converge on any point of the unit circle.

##### Solution Summary

The root test is proven assuming ratio test.

Problem:

a) Prove root test " lim(sqrt|An)|)=L as n goes to infinity" assuming ratio test "lim(|An+1)|/|A n|)=L as n goes to infinity"

ps. {An} is a sequence of non-zero complex numbers

b) Prove that although the following power series have R=1
sum(nz^n) does not converge on any point of the unit circle

Solution:

a) First off all, I have to make a correction to the above statement:
it is not sqrt|An| under the limit, but |An|^(1/n) or in other words, it is not "square" root, but root of order "n" (or fractional power).
Now, we can rephrase the theorem which we ...
