MAT A26 Lecture 45 1 Power Series definition 1.1. A power series is a series of the form k =0 a k ( z - a ) k , where a k is a sequence and a is a constant. The power series can be a real or complex depending on whether a k and a are real or complex. corollary 1.2. Convergence for Power Series Let k =0 a k ( z - a ) k be a given power series, then there exists a unique number R [0 , ) , called the radius of convergence such that 1. the series converges absolutely for | z - a | < R 2. the series diverges for | z - a | > R 3. the test fails if | z - a | = R proof. The proof of this theorem is provided in the course Complex Vari- ables (MATC34H3) So stay in suspense until you take that course. It is worth the wait!! Summary: There are three cases: Case 1: k =0 a k ( z - a ) k converges absolutely for all z C , in which case we say that the radius of convergence R = . Case 2: There is a positive number R such that k =0 a k ( z - a ) k converges absolutely for | z - a | < R and diverges for | z - a | > R , in which case we say

    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.
