We have the inequality $$\alpha_n(t) \le 4\pi(3\pi)^{1/3} \exp\left\{\int_0^t(1+3F_P(\sigma)) \, d\sigma \right\} \cdot \int_0^t P(\sigma)^2(3CD_1^2)^{1/3}\alpha_{n-1}(\sigma) \, d\sigma$$ for $n=2,3,\ldots$. (We notice that $\alpha_n$ appears on both sides of the inequality.)

Why does it follow that the infinite series $$\sum_{n=1}^\infty \alpha_n(t)$$ converges locally uniformly on $\mathbb R_0^+$ (that is, converges on $[0,T]$ for $0 \le t \le T$)?

This comes from page 354 of the journal that contains the paper "**Global symmetric solutions of the initial value problem of stellar dynamics**" by Jurgen Batt.
