Convergence and divergence of sequences and series and different modes of convergence and divergence. Also for convergence of improper integrals.

This tag is for questions about Convergent Sequences and Series and their existence, and by extension also for divergent ones. Also for convergence/divergence of improper integrals.

Formally, a sequence $S_n$ converges to the limit $S.$

$$\lim_{n\to \infty}S_n=S $$ if, for any $\epsilon>0$, there exists an $N>0$ such that $|S_n-S|<\epsilon$ for $n>N$.

A sequence diverges if it does not converge.
