## Geometric Series

Recall that for any complex number , the signal

*geometric sequence*,

*i.e.*, each term is obtained by multiplying the previous term by the (complex) constant . A

*geometric series*is the

*sum*of a geometric sequence:

*closed form*:

*Proof: *We have

When , , by inspection of the definition of .
