WEIERSTRASS M-TEST
Before proving the Weierstrass M-Test we will need to gather a few tools.

Any sequence that satisfies the Cauchy Criterion is known as a Cauchy sequence. The
above theorem also shows that every convergent sequence is Cauchy, and every Cauchy
sequence is convergent.

Weierstrass M-Test.

converges uniformly on E.
PROOF:
Since

such that for any m and n that satisfy
we get that

So now, if we look at the Comparison Test, we see that it is a special case of the
Weierstrass M-Test where

converges as well.
Since we know some of the ideas behind the Weierstrass M-Test, we can now begin to
look at some of its applications. We will first consider an application of the Weierstrass M-Test
in the set of , before moving into applications within the set of .
Example
Show that the real-valued series
is uniformly convergent.
The Weierstrass M-Test gives us the ability to show this without considering any limits.
First, we observe that for any

Now we want to show that the series
(our series
) is convergent. This
series converges to by the following Lemma.

We may be able to apply the Weierstrass M-Test if we can show that the series
converges. If we use the Ratio Test we can prove that
