Definition: Sequences Tending To Infinity

A divergent real series \((x_n)_{n\in\mathbb N}\) is said to tend to infinity (respectively to tend to minus infinity) if for every real constant \(C\in\mathbb R\) there exists an index \(N( C)\in\mathbb N\) with

\[x_n > C\quad\text{(respectively }x_n < C\text{)}\quad\text{for all }n\ge N( C).\]

If any of the above conditions is fulfilled, we write

\[\lim_{n\to\infty}x_n =\infty\quad\text{(respectively }\lim_{n\to\infty}x_n =-\infty\text{)}.\]
