Series, Divergence, and the Cantor Set
Lecture no. 18 from the course: Understanding Calculus II: Problems, Solutions, and Tips
Taught by Professor Bruce H. Edwards | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses
Explore an important test for divergence of an infinite series: If the terms of a series do not tend to zero, then the series diverges. Solve a bouncing ball problem. Then investigate a paradoxical property of the famous Cantor set.
