In the book, "A History of Pi", a reference is made to the following problem:

What is the value of the following infinite series?

1 - 1 + 1 - 1 + 1 - 1 + 1 - 1 + .....

What is the value and why? The book doesn't give the value or the approach for the solution which would normally be fine except that I can't figure it out! :)

Thank you for your time.

-John
