http://numericalmethods.eng.usf.edu 4 General Taylor Series The general form of the Taylor series is given by ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) + + + + = + 3 2 ! 3 ! 2 h x f h x f h x f x f h x f provided that all derivatives of f(x) are continuous and exist in the interval [x,x+h] What does this mean in plain English? As Archimedes would have said, “Give me the value of the function at a single point, and the value of all (first, second, and so on) its derivatives at that single point, and I can give you the value of the function at any other point” ( fine print excluded )
