## Divergent series

In mathematics, a divergent series is an infinite series that is not convergent, meaning that the infinite sequence of the partial sums of the series does not have a finite limit.

## Euler summation

In the mathematics of convergent and divergent series, Euler summation is a summability method.

## Finite difference

A finite difference is a mathematical expression of the form.

## Geometric series

In mathematics, a geometric series is a series with a constant ratio between successive terms.

## Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz

Gottfried Wilhelm (von) Leibniz (or; Leibnitz; – 14 November 1716) was a German polymath and philosopher who occupies a prominent place in the history of mathematics and the history of philosophy.

## Grandi's series

In mathematics, the infinite series 1 - 1 + 1 - 1 + \dotsb, also written \sum_^ (-1)^n is sometimes called Grandi's series, after Italian mathematician, philosopher, and priest Guido Grandi, who gave a memorable treatment of the series in 1703.

## Series (mathematics)

In mathematics, a series is, roughly speaking, a description of the operation of adding infinitely many quantities, one after the other, to a given starting quantity.
