A General Theorem on the Conditional Convergence of Trigonometric Series


The purpose of this paper is to establish, paralleling a well-known result for definite integrals, the conditional convergence of a family of trigonometric sine series. The fundamental idea is to group appropriately the terms of the series in order to show absolute divergence of the series, given the well-established result that the series as it stands is convergent.
