I see where you're coming from, but then, why is it converging? Can't we just say:

I'm betting a is somewhere in [e, 6] range.

I was a little perplexed myself when it converged, because I know that

this converges only for integer values of t. This is why I made sure to make t = 0, and not a real value, but still it makes you wonder if a derivative of the growth of something that doesn't converge will converge... but then it does, at least for x>a.

Perhaps I'm making an error somewhere and the convergence is right for the wrong reasons.
