﻿ Convergent: Two mathematical objects are convergent if they draw close to each other.

# Convergent

Pronunciation: /kənˈvɜrdʒ ənt/ ?

Two mathematical objects are convergent if they draw close to each other.[1] For example, a function is a convergent function if the value of the function draws close to a numeric value as the argument tends towards positive or negative infinity.[3]

An infinite series is a convergent series if the sum of the series draws close to a particular value. A sequence is a convergent sequence if the limit of the sequence is a particular value.[4]
