**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**

The sequence is absolutely convergent iff both and converge.

It is conditionally convergent iff converges while diverges.

Examples.

is absolutely convergent. We have and .

is conditionally convergent. We have while is divergent.
