By Bruce Shawyer

Summability equipment are variations that map sequences (or capabilities) to sequences (or functions). a major requirement for a "good" summability technique is that it preserves convergence. until it's the identification transformation, it is going to do extra: it is going to rework a few divergent sequences to convergent sequences.

An vital form of theorem is named a Tauberian theorem. right here, we all know series is summable. The series satisfies another estate that means convergence.

Borel's equipment are basic to an entire type of sequences to operate equipment. The transformation provides a functionality that's often analytic in a wide a part of the complicated airplane, resulting in a mode for analytic continuation.

These tools, dated from the start of the twentieth century, have lately came upon purposes in a few difficulties in theoretical physics.

17 above). Borel's method (B) is regular; that is, if sn -> a as n - oo, then sn -f or (B). 4. (see, for example, Hardy T[17], theorem 127). Borel's method (B) is linear: that is, if sn - a (B), if to -+ 'r (B), and if A is any complex number, then (sn + tn) -> (a + -r) (B), and (Asn) - (Aa) (B) . Basic properties of Borel's methods 29 The proof of this is easy. 2 Interrelationships In this section we give the interrelationships between the methods (B) and (B'). Here we see why Borel did not obtain two equivalent methods.
