Hello friends,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

[tex] lim sup |\frac{a_{n+1}}{a_{n}}|[/tex]

I know that this operation tests for convergence, but I don't understand how it's related to [tex] lim_{n -> \infty}|\frac{a_{n+1}}{a_{n}}|[/tex]

I understand that both will give the same result, but how is the latter different? lim sup is the sup of the collection of sub-sequential limits, so what does it mean when we take [tex] lim sup |\frac{a_{n+1}}{a_{n}}|[/tex] ?

I appreciate your help,

M
