# Abel's test

In mathematics, **Abel's test** (also known as **Abel's criterion**) is a method of testing for the convergence of an infinite series. The test is named after mathematician Niels Henrik Abel. There are two slightly different versions of Abel's test – one is used with series of real numbers, and the other is used with power series in complex analysis. **Abel's uniform convergence test** is a criterion for the uniform convergence of a series of functions dependent on parameters.
