I assume this line is still convergent, however if you separate the difference into two sides you work with two divergent series.

Well the next line must be true, because, using pari gp

this series converges, at least for values like ln(20), ln(100), and numbers just greater than e they have very close convergence, maybe 4 to 6 decimal places.

It was this series that doesn't converge at all.

I never knew this, I think this would provide error except if we let t = 0 sooner, because:

the right series converges to absolutely;

the left series' convergence depends on the digamma's function as it approaches infinity... Actually, writing this, I just thought of a neat proof.

and

therefore:

plug in our formula for the euler mascheroni constant

And now I'm stuck.... So I guess it comes to evaluating this to see if the series diverges. at least the first one, i'm still stumped as to why the second one doesn't converge if the first one does.

Is there a similar type of law for products of infinite series that I'm overlooking?
