The series is pointwise convergence by the alternating series test (since the series is decreasing all the terms are non-negative on etc).

The conditions imply that there exists a decreasing positive sequence as such that for all .

Then (since the remainder for a truncated alternating series is bounded by the absolute value of the first neglected term):

etc.
