Radius of convergence
It often happens that a differential equation cannot be solved in terms of elementary functions that is, in closed form in terms of polynomials, rational functions, e x , sin x , cos x , In x , etc. A power series solution is all that is available. Such an expression is nevertheless an entirely valid solution, and in fact, many specific power series that arise from solving particular differential equations have been extensively studied and hold prominent places in mathematics and physics.
A power series in x about the point x 0 is an expression of the form. This is concisely written using summation notation as follows:. A series is useful only if it converges that is, if it approaches a finite limiting sum , so the natural question is, for what values of x will a given power series converge? Every power series in x falls into one of three categories:. R is called the radius of convergence of the power series, and the set of all x for which a real power series converges is always an interval, called its interval of convergence.
Example 1 : Find the radius and interval of convergence for each of these power series:. For example, 4! For a power series with a finite interval of convergence, the question of convergence at the endpoints of the interval must be examined separately. It may happen that the power series converges at neither endpoint, at only one, or at both. The power series. For any series to converge, it is necessary that the individual terms go to 0. Since this power series has a finite interval of convergence, the quetion of convergence at the endpoints of the interval must be examined separately.
Therefore, the interval of convergence of the power series. Previous Solutions of Differential Equations. Next Taylor Series.

8.6: Power Series
The power series can be differentiated term-by-term inside the interval of convergence. The derivative of the power series exists and is given by the formula. The power series can be also integrated term-by-term on an interval lying inside the interval of convergence. Necessary cookies are absolutely essential for the website to function properly.

Complex Variables with Applications pp Cite as. From sequences of numbers, we turn to sequences of functions. Then our concern is with both the form of convergence and the behavior of the limit function. Convergence, determined at each point in a set, need not require the limit function to retain any of the properties common to each function in the sequence.
In mathematics , the radius of convergence of a power series is the radius of the largest disk in which the series converges. When it is positive, the power series converges absolutely and uniformly on compact sets inside the open disk of radius equal to the radius of convergence, and it is the Taylor series of the analytic function to which it converges. The radius of convergence is infinite if the series converges for all complex numbers z. Two cases arise. The second case is practical: when you construct a power series solution of a difficult problem you typically will only know a finite number of terms in a power series, anywhere from a couple of terms to a hundred terms.

Introduction to Power Series
Видимо, в его действиях было нечто такое, что ей знать не полагалось. Сьюзан опустилась на стул. Повисла пауза. Стратмор поднял глаза вверх, собираясь с мыслями. - Сьюзан, - наконец произнес он еле слышно.
Выражение его лица тут же смягчилось. - Сьюзан, извини. Это кошмар наяву. Я понимаю, ты расстроена из-за Дэвида. Я не хотел, чтобы ты узнала об этом. Я был уверен, что он тебе все рассказал.
О юристах, фанатичных борцах за гражданские права, о Фонде электронных границ - они все приняли в этом участие, но дело в другом. Дело в людях. Они потеряли веру. Они стали параноиками. Они внезапно стали видеть врага в .
Не очень правдоподобное заявление. - Согласна, - сказала Сьюзан, удивившись, почему вдруг Хейл заговорил об. - Я в это не верю.
В первый раз в жизни. Мидж стояла на своем: - Но, сэр. Коммандер Стратмор обошел систему Сквозь строй.
- Выясним, права ли .
