Proposition: Cauchy Condensation Criterion

An infinite series $\sum_{k=0}^\infty x_k$ with a monotonically decreasing real sequence $(x_k)_{k\in\mathbb N}$ of non-negative members $x_k\ge 0$ for all $k\in\mathbb N$ is convergent if and only if the “condensed series” $$\sum_{n=0}^\infty 2^n x_{2^n}$$ is convergent.
