If x is real, exp(ixn) = cos(xn) + i*sin(xn) .
cos^2(A) + sin^2(A) = 1 if A is real.
If x=0, the series diverges. Also, x = 2kPi , k in Z: divergent.
For x real, it doesn't converge absolutely.
On uniform convergence:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniform_convergence
Suppose X is the set of reals where x in X iff the series converges.
Do we know what X is?
