Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it seems as though it is z<1/e if you think of stirling's approximation z! = z^z • √(2πz) ÷ e^z

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle \sum_{ n=1 }^{ \infty }\frac{n^{n+2}z^n}{n!} }\) \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle \sum_{ n=1 }^{ \infty }\frac{n^{n}n^2z^n}{n!} }\) by Stirling's approximation, \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle \sum_{ n=1 }^{ \infty }\frac{n^{n}n^2e^nz^n}{n^n\sqrt{2\pi n}} }\) \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle \sum_{ n=1 }^{ \infty }\frac{n^2e^nz^n}{\sqrt{2\pi n}} }\) \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle \sum_{ n=1 }^{ \infty }\frac{n^2e^n}{\sqrt{2\pi n}\left(\dfrac{1}{z}\right)^n} }\) So if: 1/z>e > z<1/e then the series will converge.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do the ratio test tho, that might be off just a bit.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{(n+1)^{n+3}\times n!}{(n+1)!n^{n+2}}=\frac{(n+1)^{n+2}}{n^{n+2}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you do get \(e\) as the limit, but that means \[z<\frac{1}{e}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I use Hamadard test, which is \(a_n = \dfrac{n^{n+2}}{n!}\) then \(\sqrt[n]a_n = \dfrac{\sqrt[n]{n^2n^n}}{\sqrt[n]n!}\) and we know that the denominator \(\approx n/e \). Hence, it is \(\dfrac{n\sqrt[n] n^2}{(n/e)}= e\sqrt[n]n^2\) oh, yeah, I forgot to take \(R = 1/ limsup \sqrt[n]a_n\) that is why I got e, but 1/e Thank you all.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeah, just a note that this denominator of ≈n/e is also a consequence of Stirling's approximation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in any case, it is *z<1/e* .....
