Deﬁnition 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 Deﬁnition 0.7 (Taylor Polynomial of order n ) displaystyleP n ( x ) = ∑ n k =0 f ( k ) ( a ) k !
