Default Re: Infinite multiplication

More generally, it will happen if the sequence of numbers that you are multiplying doesn't converge to 1, or converges slowly to 1. If the numbers in your sequence go to 1 quickly enough, then M can be non-zero.

Thanks for the answer. Can you please elaborate a bit on how is the "quickness" of the convergence effecting M? that is, what is the criteria for a sequence that is converging to 1, which for it M=0, as opposed to a different sequence that also converges to 1, but that produces a non-zero M?
