sum 1-->infinity of (arctan(1/n)^n
Here's what I've done:
lim 1->infinity of: nth root (above expression)
= lim 1-> infinity of arctan(1/n)
Now what?
At first the problem seems an easy application of a convergence criterion... may be however that it covers up an insidious trap ...

Root test: suppose that the terms of the sequence are non negative and that there exists r such that...

If the series converges, if the series diverges, if the root test is inconclusive...
It is not quite obvious the reason to have in (1) instead of . Anyway in our case is...

Now, if we want to apply the root test as explained by Wiky, the problem is that an such that doesn't exists ...
