If an infinite series converges, then the individual terms (of the underlying sequence being summed) must converge to \(0\). This can be phrased as a simple divergence test: If \(\lim_{n\to\infty}a_n\) either does not exist, or exists but is nonzero, then the infinite series \(\sum_n a_n\) diverges. Otherwise, the test is inconclusive.
