Integration/Antidifferentiation Questions 2. Infinite Sequences 3. Exponential Growth/Decay 4. Differential Equations 5. Power Series 6. Infinite Series Find Interval/Radius of Convergence To find the radius of convergence, generally proceed as follows: 1. Determine 2. Use ratio test 3. Set the result of ratio test to be less than 1 Power Series Representation To find the power series representation, generally proceed as follows: 1. Rewrite the question (if needed) into a form that looks like a known function (for example, 1 1 ) 2. If you know the representation of a function appearing in the question, use it 3. Manipulate formula (multiply by , etc) to match formula 5 6 Sum of Power Series To find the sum of a power series, generally proceed as follows: 1. Try and rewrite (by integrating/differentiating, etc) the question to make it look like ∞ =0 2. Use the fact that, ∞ =0 = 1 1 Convergent / Divergent Series To test a series for convergence/divergence try to use the following tests in this order: 1. Divergence Test 2. (If series is alternating) Alternating Series Test 3. Integral Test 4. Ratio Test 5. Root Test 6. Comparison Test 7. Limit Comparison Test Sum of Infinite Series If you are asked to find the sum of an infinite series, the only three ways you can do that is: 1. Write it as a telescoping sum 2. Write is a a geometric series and use the fact that, ∞ =1 1 = 1 3. If they give you the partial sum , take lim →∞ 7 Estimating Sums If you are asked to find the number of terms to estimate a sum, the only three ways of doing it are: 1. If it’s an alternating series, use the Estimate for Alternating Series Theorem1....
