Abstract: In functional analysis the notion of a summable family (with sum x) is
wellknown. If (x_i)_{i\in I} is a family of points from a normed space,
(x_i) is called summable to x iff for each \epsilon>0 there exists a
finite set F_0\subset I such that ||x-\Sum_{i\in F}x_i||<\epsilon for
each finite set F, F_0\subset F\subset I. But we can interprete this
definition as the convergence of a suitable net. In a normed commutative
group we charaterize the fact that this net is a Cauchy net.
