# Convergence of $\sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{\sin^2(n)}{n}$

Does the series $$\sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{\sin^2(n)}{n}$$ converge?

I've tried to apply some tests, and I don't know how to bound the general term, so I must have missed something. Thanks in advance.

Why not asking this on the page of your previous question? – Did Jan 9 '13 at 16:07
@did Now I can't delete this question. I'm sorry. Thanks for this example. – V. Galerkin Jan 9 '13 at 16:57

Each interval of the form $\bigl[k\pi+{\pi\over6}, (k+1)\pi-{\pi\over6}\bigr)$ contains an integer $n_k$. We then have, for each $k$, that ${\sin^2(n_k)\over n_k}\ge {(1/2)^2\over (k+1)\pi}$. Now use a comparison test to show your series diverges.
Write $$\sum \frac{\sin^2(n)}{n} = \sum \frac{1}{2n} - \sum \frac{\cos(2n)}{2n},$$ clearly at the right handed side, the first is divergent but the second converges.
