1. Series convergence

I have two series:
$\sum_{n=13}^{\infty} (-1)^{\left\lfloor \frac{n}{13} \right\rfloor} \frac{lnn}{nln(lnn)}$. I wanted to 'group' terms but I had a problem with idices.

$\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} (-1)^{n} \frac{2lnn}{(n+1)^{0,5}}$ I tried the Leibniz's, Dirichlet's, Abel's tests but they gave me nothing. Any hints how to cope with them?

Hi Lisa91!

You said you tried Leibniz and that it gave you nothing.
From the formula there's a pretty good match with Leibniz's test, so let's investigate.

Can you find $\lim_{n \to \infty} {2 \ln n \over (n+1)^{0.5}}$?

Well, I suppose it's 0 but I'm not so sure I know how to prove it. I wanted to show that the sequence declines but I couldn't finish it.

Yes, it is zero.
So if it is also decreasing, we can apply Leibniz.
