Radius of convergence
The radius of convergence of a power seriesis 0 if the series diverges for all nonzero x.
It is ∞ if the series converges absolutely for all x.
Otherwise, it is the positive number r such that the series converges absolutely for | x | < r and diverges for | x | > r.
The radius of convergence is equal to , if that limit exists.
