# Complex analysis: Radius of convergence of power series

$$\sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{\cos n \theta}{(\sqrt{13})^{n+1}}x^n$$

Find the radius of convergence for the above series. I have learnt to use the root test and ratio test but neither of them seem to work. I have problems manipulating.

Not sure if this is useful: $\cos z = \frac{1}{2} \left(e^{iz}+e^{-iz} \right)$

I would use the fact that cosine is bounded. –  echoone Aug 25 '12 at 14:36
@echoone what if $\theta$ is a complex number? In this case cosine is unbounded. –  The Substitute Mar 28 at 13:30

Here is a hint. For any $N\in\mathbb{Z}^+$ we have that $\sup_{n>N}(\cos(n\theta))^{1/n} = 1$. Now try the root test.
Is this correct if $\theta$ is a complex number? Isn't cosine of a complex argument unbounded by Liouville's Theorem? –  The Substitute Mar 28 at 13:29
