I will define the n with which I work in my suite so as not to fall into absurdities like 1/0 which gives false calculations. find that $\displaystyle n = \pi / \arccos (Z_{n + 1} / Z_n)$ Note that $Z_n \ne 0$ and $(Z_{n + 1} / Z_n) \ne 1$, so the $Z_n$ limit is non-zero. And since I have a decreasing sequence, $\displaystyle Z_{n + 1} / Z_n < 1$, so the series $Z_n$ is convergent according to the d'Alembert criterion. Is there an error in this reasoning? $Z_n$ is a positive term and is decreasing and minus 0 tends to 0 minus bound 0, which is impossible because $Z_n \ne 0$, no?
