[tex]
\sum_{k=1}^\infty (\sqrt{k+1}  \sqrt{k})(\ln{k+1}\ln{k}) [/tex] How do I go about finding out if it's convergent or divergent ?

Investigate sum
Hint: sqrt(k+1)sqrt(k) = {sqrt(k)+sqrt(k+1)}^{1}
and you can put the logs together.

after combining the logs, try to prove that
[tex]\frac{1}{x} \geq \ln (1 + \frac{1}{x})[/tex] for all positive x edit: oops i missed the last reply while typing mine sorry
