It is well known that the Harmonic Series diverges (1/1+1/2+1/3+1/4+...), but that the series [1/1+1/4+1/9+1/16+...] converges. In the first series, the denominators are the integers, whereas in the second example, the denominators are the integers to the power of 2. My question is, at what power do the sums of the reciprocals "switch" from divergence to convergence?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
