If the sum of |

We call this type of convergence absolute convergence.

As an example, look at

.

We know that since the absolute value of sin(*x*) is always less
than or equal to one, then

So, by the Comparison Test, and the fact that

is a convergent *p*-series, we find that

converges, so

converges.
