Proving the divergence of the Harmonic series (alternate method(s))Without using either of the two specific methods shown at this Signature line: I wish a had a more interesting signature line. #2 20111011 01:05:28
Re: Proving the divergence of the Harmonic series (alternate method(s))I want everyone to see this, so I did not hide it: Last edited by reconsideryouranswer (20111011 01:19:48) Signature line: I wish a had a more interesting signature line. #3 20111016 13:20:21
Re: Proving the divergence of the Harmonic series (alternate method(s))I will start with: Again, assume S is a finite sum. S = 1 + 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/4 + 1/5 + 1/6 + 1/7 + 1/8 + 1/9 + ... S = 1 + (1/2 + 1/3) + (1/4 + 1/5) + (1/6 + 1/7) + (1/8 + 1/9) + ... S = 1 + (5/6) + (9/20) + (13/42) + (17/72) + ...
