# Abel Summation

**Calculus**Level 3

\[ \large 1-2+3-4+5-6+\cdots \]

Define the Abel sum \(\sum\limits_{n=0}^\infty a_n \) to be \( \displaystyle \lim_{z\to 1^-} \sum_{n=0}^\infty a_nz^n, \) if that limit exists.

The Abel sum of the (divergent) series as shown above can be written as \( \dfrac{a}{b}\), where \( a\) and \( b \) are coprime positive integers. Find \( a+b\).
