# How do you test for convergence given #Sigma (-1)^n n^(-1/n)# from #n=[1,oo)#?

The series:

is not convergent.

As the series:

is alternating, we can test it for convergence using Leibniz's criteria stating that:

We have that:

so the series is not convergent.

To test for convergence of the series ∑(-1)^n * n^(-1/n) from n=1 to infinity, you can use the Alternating Series Test. This test states that if a series has alternating signs and its terms decrease in absolute value monotonically to zero, then the series converges.

Here, the series has alternating signs and the terms decrease as n increases to infinity. To show this, you can observe that as n increases, n^(-1/n) decreases since the exponent (-1/n) becomes smaller, leading to larger values for n. Additionally, n^(-1/n) approaches 1 as n approaches infinity.

Therefore, the series ∑(-1)^n * n^(-1/n) converges by the Alternating Series Test.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
