Series of complex numbers.

Definition 7.1.1   Let be given a sequence $ (u_n)_{n \geq 0}$ of complex numbers. The expression

$\displaystyle \underset{k=0}{\overset{+\infty }{\sum}} u_k =u_0+u_1+u_2+ \dots + U_n + \dots$    

is called the infinite series with $ u_n$ as its general term.

Definition 7.1.2   The sequence $ (S_n)_{n \geq 0}$ whose general term is $ S_n=\underset{k=0}{\overset{n}{\sum}} u_k = u_0+u_1 + \dots + u_n$ is called the sequence of partial sums of the given series.
