## Taylor Series Uses #1: Complicated Integrals

1. Can you compute ? Well, first we consider the antiderivative for …which doesn’t exist. What do we do? Cry. No, what I mean is, use Taylor series! Advertisements

## Taylor Polynomials

1. So last time we concluded discussing Taylor series with constructing a polynomial using the first terms in the Taylor series. This “Taylor polynomial” approximated our function, and we want to know how well does it approximate? We will derive … Continue reading

## Power Series

1. Definitions. Let be a variable. a series of the form (1) is called a “Power Series about ”. A series of the form (2) is called a “Power Series about ”. Example 1. Consider the series (3) For what … Continue reading

## Other Alternating Series Tests

1. We have another couple of methods testing if an alternating series converges. It’s worth knowing as many different ways as possible, because sometimes one doesn’t work well (or at all). We will consider a couple tests. For each test … Continue reading
