Math 191 Problem Set for Week 13 Section Theorem 0.1 (The nth Term Test) If a n fails to exist or is different from zero, then X n =1 a n diverges. Theorem 0.2 (The Alternating Series Test) The series X n =1 ( - 1) n +1 u n = u 1 - u 2 + u 3 - u 4 + ... (1) converges if all three of the following conditions are satisfied: a. The u n ’s are all positive. b. u n u n +1 for all n N , for some integer N . c. u n 0 as n → ∞ . Definition 0.3 (Absolutely Convergent) A series a n converges absolutely if the corresponding series of absolutel values | a n | converges. Definition 0.4 (Conditionally Convergent) A series that converges but does not converge absolutely con- verges conditionally. Theorem 0.5 (The Absolute Convergence Test) If X n =1 | a n | converges, then X n =1 a n converges. Which of the series in the following converge absolutely, or conditionally, and which diverge? 1. X n =1 ( - 1) n +1 1 n 2 2. X n =2 ( - 1) n +1 1 ln n 3. X n =1 ( - 1) n +1 3 + n 5 + n 4. X n =1 ( - 1) n +1 tan - 1 n n 2 + 1 5. X n =1 ( - 1) n +1 ( q n + n - n ) 6. In the series X n =1 (1 + 1 n ) n x n , (a) find the series’ radius and interval of convergence. For what values of

Denition 0.6 (Taylor and Maclaurin series) Let f be a function with derivatives of all orders through-out 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 !
