    1. 1. 11.4 The Comparison Tests The convergence of some series can be determined easily by the integral test, for example: = Some series look similar, but the integral test cannot be easily applied, for example: = +
    2. 2. The Comparison Test: ∞ ∞Suppose = and = are series withpositive terms, ∞ If = is convergent and ≤ ∞ then = is also convergent. ∞ If = is divergent and ≥ ∞ then = is also divergent. If = > is finite then they either both converge or both diverge.
    3. 3. Common series used for comparison: p-series: converges for > = diverges for = geometric series: converges for | | < = diverges for | | =
    4. 4. Ex: Test the series for convergence. = +
    5. 5. Ex: Test the series for convergence. = + < + is convergent. = So is convergent. = +
