# Converging series in Banach space

Does someone know if the following is true:

Let $\mathbb{X}$ be some arbitrary Banach space. $\{x_k \}_{k=1}^{\infty} \in \mathbb{X}$ is a sequence chosen from $\mathbb{X}$.

Now, if the series $$\sum_{k=1}^\infty \|x_k\|_X$$ converges, would the "more generic" series
$$\sum_{k=1}^\infty x_k$$ also converge?

If yes, could you please give the proof (or just mark the proof steps) ?

Thank you.

If you remember how in calculus the absolute convergence of a series implies the convergence of the series without absolute values, then this is the same and I believe it is also called absolute convergence. – Adrián Barquero Dec 20 '10 at 18:48
For everyone who is interested - the full proof can be found here: planetmath.org/… – Yippie-Kai-Yay Dec 20 '10 at 18:58

Yes. You can use the hypothesis that $\sum\|x_k\|$ converges to show that the sequence of partial sums of the series $\sum x_k$ is a Cauchy sequence.
