Euler's proof of divergence of sum of reciprocals of primes

On Wikipedia at link currently is: \begin{align} \ln \left( \sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{1}{n}\right) & {} = \ln\left( \prod_p \frac{1}{1-p^{-1}}\right) = -\sum_p \ln \left( 1-\frac{1}{p}\right) \\ ...

Multiplication of infinite series

Why multiplication of finite sums $(\sum_{i=0}^n a_i)(\sum_{i=0}^n b_i)=\sum_{i=0}^n (\sum_{j=0}^ia_jb_{i-j})$ (EDIT: This assumption was shown to be false) does not work in infinite case? I have ...

Infinite series

$$\log2=1-\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{3}-\frac{1}{4}+\frac{1}{5}-\frac{1}{6}+\cdots$$ $$\frac{\log2}{2}=\frac{1}{2}-\frac{1}{4}+\frac{1}{6}-\frac{1}{8}+\frac{1}{10}-\frac{1}{12}+\cdots$$ Adding these two ...

What am I doing wrong?

I am trying to prove the integral test for series, but got a strange result. Assume that $f$ is decreasing and positive. Because the series can be imagined as the area-sum of $1$-wide rectangles of ...
