Unformatted text preview: x does the series converge (b) absolutely, (c) conditionally? Denition 0.6 (Taylor and Maclaurin series) Let f be a function with derivatives of all orders throughout some interval containing a as an interior point. Then Taylor series generated by f at x = a is X k =0 f ( k ) ( a ) k ! ( xa ) k (2) The Maclaurin series generated by f is X k =0 f ( k ) (0) k ! x k , the Taylor series generated by f at x = 0 . 1 Denition 0.7 (Taylor Polynomial of order n ) displaystyleP n ( x ) = n k =0 f ( k ) ( a ) k !
