# Definition:Convergent Series/Normed Vector Space/Definition 1

## Definition

Let $V$ be a normed vector space.

Let $d$ be the induced metric on $V$.

Let $\ds S := \sum_{n \mathop = 1}^\infty a_n$ be a series in $V$.

$S$ is convergent if and only if its sequence $\sequence {s_N}$ of partial sums converges in the metric space $\struct {V, d}$.
