improper integrals, convergent or divergent? follow-up

Postby TomasRiker » Mon Feb 04, 2013 1:44 pm

In this thread, a poster said:

nona.m.nona wrote:To be convergent, an integral must have a finite value. If the value is not finite, then the integral, by definition, does not converge.

What about cases like ?
This doesn't go to infinity but still it doesn't converge.
