**11**INFINITE SEQUENCES AND SERIES**INFINITE SEQUENCES AND SERIES**In section 11.9, we were able to find power series representations for a certain restricted class of functions.**INFINITE SEQUENCES AND SERIES**Here, we investigate more general problems. • Which functions have power series representations? • How can we find such representations?**INFINITE SEQUENCES AND SERIES**11.10 Taylor and Maclaurin Series In this section, we will learn: How to find the Taylor and Maclaurin Series of a function and to multiply and divide a power series.**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Equation 1 We start by supposing that f is any function that can be represented by a power series**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Let’s try to determine what the coefficients cnmust be in terms of f. • To begin, notice that, if we put x = a in Equation 1, then all terms after the first one are 0 and we get: f(a) = c0**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Equation 2 By Theorem 2 in Section 11.9, we can differentiate the series in Equation 1 term by term:**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Substitution of x =a in Equation 2 gives: f’(a) = c1**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Equation 3 Now, we differentiate both sides of Equation 2 and obtain:**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Again, we put x = a in Equation 3. • The result is: f’’(a) = 2c2**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Let’s apply the procedure one more time.**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Equation 4 Differentiation of the series in Equation 3 gives:**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Then, substitution of x =a in Equation 4 gives: f’’’(a) = 2 · 3c3 = 3!c3**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**By now, you can see the pattern. • If we continue to differentiate and substitute x =a, we obtain:**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Solving the equation for the nth coefficient cn, we get:**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**The formula remains valid even for n = 0 if we adopt the conventions that 0! = 1 and f (0) = (f). • Thus, we have proved the following theorem.**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Theorem 5 If f has a power series representation (expansion) at a, that is, if then its coefficients are given by:**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Equation 6 Substituting this formula for cn back into the series, we see that if f has a power series expansion at a, then it must be of the following form.**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Equation 6**TAYLOR SERIES**The series in Equation 6 is called the Taylor series of the function f at a (or about a or centered at a).**TAYLOR SERIES**Equation 7 For the special case a = 0, the Taylor series becomes:**MACLAURIN SERIES**Equation 7 This case arises frequently enough that it is given the special name Maclaurin series.**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**The Taylor series is named after the English mathematician Brook Taylor (1685–1731). The Maclaurin series is named for the Scottish mathematician Colin Maclaurin (1698–1746). • This is despite the fact that the Maclaurin series is really just a special case of the Taylor series.**MACLAURIN SERIES**Maclaurin series are named after Colin Maclaurin because he popularized them in his calculus textbook Treatise of Fluxions published in 1742.**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Note We have shown that if, f can be represented as a power series about a, then f is equal to the sum of its Taylor series. • However, there exist functions that are not equal to the sum of their Taylor series. • An example is given in Exercise 70.**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Example 1 Find the Maclaurin series of the function f(x) = exand its radius of convergence.**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Example 1 If f(x) = ex, then f (n)(x) = ex. So,f (n)(0) = e0 = 1 for all n. • Hence, the Taylor series for f at 0 (that is, the Maclaurin series) is:**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**To find the radius of convergence, we let an =xn/n! • Then, • So, by the Ratio Test, the series converges for all x and the radius of convergence is R = ∞.**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**The conclusion we can draw from Theorem 5 and Example 1 is: • If exhas a power series expansion at 0, then**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**So, how can we determine whether exdoes have a power series representation?**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Let’s investigate the more general question: • Under what circumstances is a function equal to the sum of its Taylor series?**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**In other words, if f has derivatives of all orders, when is the following true?**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**As with any convergent series, this means that f(x) is the limit of the sequence of partial sums.**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**In the case of the Taylor series, the partial sums are:**nTH-DEGREE TAYLOR POLYNOMIAL OF f AT a**Notice that Tnis a polynomial of degree n called the nth-degree Taylor polynomial of f at a.**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**For instance, for the exponential functionf(x) = ex, the result of Example 1 shows that the Taylor polynomials at 0 (or Maclaurin polynomials) with n = 1, 2, and 3 are:**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**The graphs of the exponential function and those three Taylor polynomials are drawn here.**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**In general, f(x) is the sum of its Taylor series if:**REMAINDER OF TAYLOR SERIES**If we let Rn(x) = f(x) – Tn(x) so that f(x) = Tn(x) + Rn(x) then Rn(x) is called the remainder of the Taylor series.**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**If we can somehow show that , then it follows that: • Therefore, we have proved the following.**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**Theorem 8 If f(x) = Tn(x) + Rn(x), where Tnis the nth-degree Taylor polynomial of f at aand for |x –a| < R, then f is equal to the sum of its Taylor series on the interval |x –a| < R.**TAYLOR & MACLAURIN SERIES**In trying to show that for a specific function f, we usually use the following fact.**TAYLOR’S INEQUALITY**Theorem 9 If |f(n+1)(x)| ≤M for |x –a| ≤d, then the remainder Rn(x) of the Taylor series satisfies the inequality**TAYLOR’S INEQUALITY**To see why this is true for n = 1, we assume that |f’’(x)| ≤M. • In particular, we have f’’(x) ≤M. • So,for a ≤ x ≤ a + d, we have:**TAYLOR’S INEQUALITY**• An antiderivative of f’’ is f’. • So,by Part 2 of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus (FTC2), we have: f’(x) – f’(a) ≤M(x –a)or f’(x) ≤f’(a) + M(x –a)**TAYLOR’S INEQUALITY**• Thus,**TAYLOR’S INEQUALITY**• However, R1(x) = f(x) – T1(x) = f(x) – f(a) – f’(a)(x –a) • So,**TAYLOR’S INEQUALITY**• A similar argument, using f’’(x) ≥ -M, shows that: • So,**TAYLOR’S INEQUALITY**• We have assumed that x >a. • However,similar calculations show that this inequality is also true for x <a.**TAYLOR’S INEQUALITY**This proves Taylor’s Inequality for the case where n = 1. • The result for any n is proved in a similar way by integrating n + 1 times. • See Exercise 69 for the case n = 2
