For example, in the arithmetic progression*a*,*a*+*b*,*a*+ 2*b*, etc., the first term is*a*, and the rule for getting to the next term is to add a constant*b*to the previous one. Such a series can be continued indefinitely. A convergent series is one where the sum of the first*N*terms tends to a finite limit as*N*tends to infinity; a divergent series is one where the sum of the first*N*terms does not tend to a finite limit (an arithmetic progression, for example, does not converge).**See also:**
