    Convergence (series)

    I have to assess if \sum_{n=1}^{ \infty }  \frac{1}{1+ n^{2} \cdot x^{2}   } is convergent (uniformly convergent)

    please help

    Think of the limit comparison test.

    What can you say about \left( {\frac{{{n^2}}}{{1 + {n^2}{x^2}}}} \right) \to~?

    It goes to \frac{1}{x^{2}}?

    What does that tell you about the values of x for which it converges or diverges?

    it converges for every x \ne 0

    Re: Convergence (series)

    but that only means that it is pointwisely convergent for every x \ne 0, yes?

    so i need to check if it is pointwisely convergent somewhere , yes?

    maybe I should use cases when |x| < 1 and when |x| \ge 1 and use Weierstrass?
