Is it the root test used here? I do not think that is legal, since the root test is defined only for real numbers in Apostol (it requires a sequence of non-negative terms, which nz clearly does not follow).

Hello!

Yes, I think it’s a mistake too, as an alternative it can be proved that except when the necessary condition of convergence is not satisfied.

When z=0, if we want to be pedantic, we can show that the limit of partial sums is as goes to .

Cheers!

But if you consider absolute convergence, it is positive and it is real. Because absolute convergence implies the conditional one, the proof seems valid to me.
