Essex County College — Division of Mathematics and Physics 1 Lecture Notes #13 — Sakai Web Project Material We won’t finish this in class, but I do encourage you to continue working on this on your own. You should also try using a graphing utility to graph very high degree polynomial . .. you might learn something! Consider the functions y = e - x 2 and y = 1 1 + x 2 . 1. Write the Taylor expansions for the two functions about x = 0. What is similar about these two series? What is different? 2. Looking at the series, which function do you predict will be greater over the interval ( - 1 , 1)? Graph both and see. 3. Are these functions even or odd ? How might you see this by looking at the series expansion? 4. By looking at the coefficients, explain why it is reasonable that the series for y = e - x 2 converges for all values of x , but the series for y = 1 1 + x 2 converges only on ( - 1 , 1). 1
