## Theorem

Let $\sequence {\map {a_n} z}$ and $\sequence {\map {b_n} z}$ be sequences of complex functions on a compact set $K$.

Let $\sequence {\map {a_n} z}$ be such that:

- $\sequence {\map {a_n} z}$ is bounded in $K$
- $\ds \sum \size {\map {a_n} z - \map {a_{n + 1} } z}$ is convergent with a sum which is bounded in $K$
- $\ds \sum \map {b_n} z$ is uniformly convergent in $K$.

Then $\ds \sum \map {a_n} z \map {b_n} z$ is uniformly convergent on $K$.
