Could you help me answer the question, if there exists $\alpha <1$ such that series $n^{-\alpha} \sum _{k=1}^n \sin (k^2)$ is bounded?

Maybe it may help to know that the integral sinx² is convergent? (integral test) That might help for your question? – imranfat Jun 6 '13 at 20:46
Integral test does not help at all, since the terms are not positive. – i707107 Jun 6 '13 at 21:34
Try Dirichlet's test. – Mhenni Benghorbal Jun 6 '13 at 21:42
@MhenniBenghorbal: Can you put it as an answer? I want to see how Dirichlet's test would apply to this problem. – i707107 Jun 6 '13 at 21:53… Related – i707107 Jun 6 '13 at 22:25
