Euler’s constant Graphs like those in Figure 11.8 suggest that as 1 … 1 + x dx = 1 + ln n. n increases there is little change in the difference between the sum L1 1 1 T b. There is absolutely no empirical evidence for the divergence 1 + + Á + n 2 of the harmonic series even though we know it diverges. The partial sums just grow too slowly.

About how large would the partial sum sn be today, L1 assuming a 365-day year? To explore this idea, carry out the following steps. 34.

The Cauchy condensation test The Cauchy condensation test says: Let 5an6 be a nonincreasing sequence (an Ú an + 1 for all n) Thus, the sequence of positive terms that converges to 0.
