Subject: Re: Can two series, both diverges, multiplied give a series that converges?
Depends, try it with the definition here:

MATH 304: CONSTRUCTING THE REAL NUMBERS,

Peter Kahn Spring 2007

http://www.math.cornell.edu/~kahn/reals07.pdf

See page 12, 4.2 Algebraic operations on sequences

The lecture above expounds that when the first series

{sn} converges (by Cauchy criteria) and the second

series {tn} converges (by Cauchy criteria) , then the

result {sn}*{tn} will also converge (by Cauchy criteria).

If one of the series diverges then this theorem of

the lecture above is no use for you.

I would say everything is possible, like:

oo * 0 = 0

oo * 0 = oo

oo * 0 = c

oo * 0 = undefined
