A sequence of functions , , 2, 3, ... is said to be uniformly convergent to for a set of values of if, for each , an integer can be found such that

(1)

for
and all .

A series converges uniformly on if the sequence of partial sums defined by

(2)

converges uniformly on .

To test for uniform convergence, use Abel's uniform convergence test or the Weierstrass
M-test. If individual terms of a uniformly converging series are continuous, then
the following conditions are satisfied.

1. The series sum

(3)

is continuous.

2. The series may be integrated term by term

(4)

For example, a power series is uniformly convergent on any
closed and bounded subset inside its circle of convergence.

3. The situation is more complicated for differentiation since uniform convergence of
does not tell anything about convergence of . Suppose that converges for some , that each is differentiable on , and that converges uniformly on . Then converges uniformly on to a function , and for each ,
