VerifyConvergence

VerifyConvergence
is an option to Sum, NSum, and similar functions that specifies whether convergence checking should be done.
  • With the default setting VerifyConvergence->True, convergence is automatically checked for infinite sums and similar constructs.
  • With VerifyConvergence->False, convergence is not explicitly checked, and results may correspond to various regularized forms.
By default Sum will verify convergence:
Setting False will avoid the verification step:
In this case, this result corresponds to a regularized version of the sum:
By default Sum will verify convergence:

Setting False will avoid the verification step:
In[2]:=

Out[2]=
In this case, this result corresponds to a regularized version of the sum:
In[3]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[3]=
