  1. As k becomes large, e^-k becomes much less than 1, and sin(e^-k) approaches e^-k
    The sum of the series 1 + 1/e + 1/e^2 converges to
    1 /(1 - 1/e)= 1.582
    High-order terms of the series
    sin(e^-k) will behave similarly, but the sum of the entire series will be somethat less than 1.582.
