Unformatted text preview: 702 CHAPTER 11 INFINITE SERIES From Problem 2 you know that the binomial series converges on the open interval (−1, 1) and deﬁnes there an inﬁnitely differentiable function. The next thing to show is that this function (the one deﬁned by the series) is actually (1 + x)α . To do this, you ﬁrst need some other results. Problem 3. Verify the identity (k + 1) Problem 4. α α α +k =α . k +1 k k Use the identity of Problem 3 to show that the sum of the binomial series
∞ φ (x ) =
k =0 αk x k satisﬁes the differential equation (1 + x)φ (x) = αφ (x) together with the initial condition φ (0) = 1. You are now in a position to prove the main result. Problem 5.
(11.9.2) for all x in (−1, 1), Show that (1 + x)α =
∞ k =0 αk x k for all x in (−1, 1). You can probably get a better feeling for the series by writing out the ﬁrst few terms:
