Lecture Notes

These notes discuss three important applications of Taylor series:

1. Using Taylor series to find the sum of a series.

2. Using Taylor series to evaluate limits.

3. Using Taylor polynomials to approximate functions.

Evaluating Infinite Series

It is possible to use Taylor series to find the sums of many different infinite series. The

following examples illustrate this idea.

EXAMPLE 1 Find the sum of the following series:

"

8!

_

" " " " "

8x "x #x $x %x

"

SOLUTION Recall the Taylor series for : /

B

" B B B B /

" " " "

"x #x $x %x

# $ % B

.

The sum of the given series can be obtained by substituting in : B "

" /

" " " "

"x #x $x %x

.

In the above example, note that we get a different series for every value of that we plug in. For B

example,

" /

# # # #

"x #x $x %x

# $ %

#

.

and

" /

" " " " " "

"x #x $x %x 8x /

"

EXAMPLE 2 Find the sums of the following series:

This is known as the for . Gregory-Leibniz formula 1

Limits Using Power Series

When taking a limit as , you can often simplify things by substituting in a power series that B !

you know.

Sometimes a limit will involve a more complicated function, and you must determine the Taylor

series:

EXAMPLE 5 Evaluate . lim

#

a b B

SOLUTION Using the Taylor series formula, the first few terms of the Taylor series for

ln cos a b B are:

ln cos a b B B B

" "

# "#

# %

.

(Really, we only need that first term.) Therefore,

lim lim lim

Limits as can be obtained using a Taylor series centered at : B + B +

EXAMPLE 6 Evaluate . lim

Taylor Polynomials

A partial sum of a Taylor series is called a Taylor polynomial. For example, the Taylor

polynomials for are: /

You can approximate any function by its Taylor polynomial: 0 B a b

0 B X B a b a b

If you use the Taylor polynomial centered at , then the approximation will be particularly good +

TAYLOR POLYNOMIALS

Let be a function. The for centered at are: 0 B 0 B B + a b a b Taylor polynomials

Note that the 1st-degree Taylor polynomial is just the tangent line to at : 0 B B + a b

This is often called the linear approximation to near , i.e. the tangent line to the 0 B B + a b

graph. Taylor polynomials can be viewed as a generalization of linear approximations. In

particular, the 2nd-degree Taylor polynomial is sometimes called the , quadratic approximation

the 3rd-degree Taylor polynomial is the , and so on. cubic approximation
