I'm studying for qualifying exams and ran into this problem.

Show that if $\{a_n\}$ is a nonincreasing sequence of positive real numbers such that $\sum_n a_n$ converges, then $\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} n a_n = 0$.

Using the definition of the limit, this is equivalent to showing

\begin{equation} \forall \varepsilon > 0 \; \exists n_0 \text{ such that } |n a_n| < \varepsilon \; \forall n > n_0 \end{equation}

or

\begin{equation} \forall \varepsilon > 0 \; \exists n_0 \text{ such that } a_n < \frac{\varepsilon}{n} \; \forall n > n_0 \end{equation}

Basically, the terms must be bounded by the harmonic series. Thanks, I'm really stuck on this seemingly simple problem!
