Unformatted text preview: radius of convergence? Z ln(1t ) t dt Solution : Note that d dt ln(1t ) =1 1t , which is the sum of the geometric series ∑ ∞ n =0t n . Thus, we have that ln(1t ) = Z ∞ X n =0t n dt = ∞ X n =0 Zt n dt = ∞ X n =01 n + 1 t n +1 + C. Plugging in t = 0 yields ln(1) = 0 = ∑ 0 + C , so that C = 0 and ln(1t ) = ∑ ∞ n =01 n +1 t n +1 . Finally, dividing by t yields ln(1t ) t = ∞ X n =01 n + 1 t n . We can integrate this to get Z ln(1t ) t dt = Z ∞ X n =01 n + 1 t n dt = ∞ X n =0 Z1 n + 1 t n dt = ∞ X n =01 ( n + 1) 2 t n +1 + C. The radius of convergence of the very ﬁrst series we created is 1 (a geometric series with ratio t ), and none of our steps do anything to change that. Thus, our ﬁnal radius of convergence is also 1....
