RE: Series test for convergence/divergence
I find Wolfram's technique to be very informative. This may be an American vs nonAmerican teaching difference, though. During a study of series testing for convergence/divergence, a variety test methods are taught, with problem examples provided to be solved outside of a classroom. Wolfram is showing that some tests are inconclusive, where others may reveal convergence or not. Some problems can be mysterious, and information, (like Wolfram provides), can be useful for making progress, at such times.
I suppose a user program for this could be made, but since we have so many commands, that fill so many mathematical needs, that this one might also be included. I read, (in an older post, somewhere), that you were thinking of this for a giac addition. It would be very nice, if included in the prime!
