$1-2+3-4+5-6+\cdots$

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 $\frac{a}{b}$, where $a$ and $b$ are coprime positive integers. Find $a+b$.
