Please reply to me directly (rolf@math.unb.ca) rather than to the
list, since the question is completely R-free and I'm simply asking
this list because there are so many clever and knowledgeable people
on it.

Suppose that n_i, i = 1, 2, 3, ... are positive integers, and that

k lim SUM n_i^j = nu_j < infinity k --> infinity i=1

for j = 1, 2, 3. Need it be the case that

k-1 lim SUM n_i * n_{i+1} exists? k --> infinity i=1

I can neither prove this, nor come up with a counter-example. Can anyone help me out?

cheers,

Rolf Turner
