(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

[tex]\sum_{n=2}^{\infty} \ln \left(1+\frac{(-1)^n}{n^p}\right)[/tex]

p is a real parameter, determine when the series converges absolutely/non-absolutely

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to do the limit [tex]\lim_{n\rightarrow \infty} \frac{\ln \left(1+\frac{(-1)^n}{n^p}\right)}{\frac{(-1)^n}{n^p}}[/tex], which is equal to one and this suggests that the series coverges if p is positive (limit comparison test). But then I'm not sure how to determine the absolute/non-absolute convergence. Could you help me please? Thanks very much in advance!
