Notes on Differentiating and Integrating Power Series Since a power series can be considered as a function o its IOC, it is natural to ask: How does one perform certain operations on them that are customary on the function studied to date? These operations include differentiation and integration as well as certain arithmetic operations. Theorem : Suppose ( 29 ( 29 0 n n n f x c x a = = - has radius of convergence 0 R (or possibly R = ∞ ), Then f is differentiable (and therefore continuous) on ( 29 , R a R a - + and a) ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 1 0 1 n n n n n n d f x c x a nc x a dx - = = = - = - b) ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 1 0 0 1 n n n n n n c f x dx c x a dx x a K n + = = = - = - + + , where K is the constant of integration for the indefinite integral. c) In both cases the radius of convergence is R , the same as the ROC of the original series. Observations : There are several observations that one needs to keep in mind when applying the above theorem. Differentiating a series is accomplished by differentiating term by term. Integrating a series is accomplished by integrating term by term. While the radius of convergence is the same for all the series, the interval of convergence may be different. That is to say, the endpoints of the interval of convergence for the original series may or may not be included in the IOC for the derivative or the IOC for the integral. Examples : The following examples demonstrate how to apply the theorem in different circumstances. 1) Find a power series representation for the function ( 29 1 tan f x x - = and determine the interval of convergence. ( 29 1 2 0 tan 1 x dt f x x t - = = + (From Calculus I) ( 29 2 0 1 x dt t = - - (Recall the Geometric series 0 1 1 n n s s = = - and set 2 s t = - ) ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 2 2 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 x x x n n n n n n n n t dt t dt t dt = = = = - = - = - ( 29 ( 29 2 1 2 1 0 0 0 1 1 2 1 2 1 x n n n n n n t x n n + + = = - = - = + + .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
