# Example of two convergent series whose product is not convergent.

Could someone give me an example of two convergent series $\sum_{n=0}^\infty a_n$ and $\sum_{n=0}^\infty b_n$ such that $\sum_{n=0}^\infty a_nb_n$ diverges?

-

$$a_n = b_n = \dfrac{(-1)^n}{\sqrt{n+1}}$$ where $n \in \{0,1,2,\ldots\}$

Why did you put $\sqrt{n+1}$ in the denominator instead of $\sqrt n$? It seems to me that it would work either way. –  MJD Jun 27 '12 at 18:23
@MarkDominus Yes. Just to start my $n$ from $0$. –  user17762 Jun 27 '12 at 18:51
Hmm, the two series are only conditionally convergent. Are there also examples where they are absolutely convergent? –  Gottfried Helms Jul 16 at 7:36
