Hi, can you tell me which theorem they have used here: http://everything2.com/title/proof+that+the+sum+of+the+reciprocals+of+the+primes+diverges(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i'm thinking on part: Well, there's an elementary theorem of calculus that a product (1-a1)...(1-ak)... with ak->0 converges to a nonzero value iff the sum a1+...+ak+... converges.

Sorry for bad english
