7.8 Improper Integrals
I = - integral from 0 to infinity of tan-1(x) / (1+x^2) dx
Answer:
A(t) = integral from 0 to t of tan-1(x) / (1+x^2) dx
u = tan-1(x) -> du = 1/(1+x^2) dx
A(t) = integral from 0 to tan-1(x) of u du = 1/2 u^2 from 0 to tan-1(t)

Taylor and Mackurin Series
Taylor Series:
Informal way
f(x) = sum from n=0 to infinity of f^(n)(a)/n! * (x-a)^n
Mackuran:
f(x) = sum from n=0 to infinity of f^(n)(a)/n! * x^n

11.5 Alternating series
Definition
An alternating series is denoted by sum from =1 to infinity of (-1)^n * an = -a1 + a2 - a3 + a4 etc

11.6 Absolute convergence, the ratio and root test
Definition: A series sum from n=1 to infiity of an is absolutely convergent (AC) if sum from n=1 to infinity of |an| converges
Definition: A series n=1 to infinity of an is called "conditional convergent"
Improper Integrals:
A comparison test:
Given f and g continuous with f(x) >= g(x) >= 0 for all x > a
If integral from a to infinity of f(x) dx converges then integral from a to infinity g(x) also converges
