Math Formulas: Taylor and Maclaurin Series

Definition of Taylor series:

$$ f(x) = f(a) + f'(a)(x-a) + \frac{f''(a)(x-a)^2}{2!} + \cdots +\frac{f^{(n-1)}(a)(x-a)^{n-1}}{(n-1)!} + R_n $$
$$ R_n = \frac{f^{(n)}(\xi)(x-a)^n}{n!} \text{ where } a \leq \xi \leq x, \quad \text{ ( Lagrangue's form )} $$
$$ R_n = \frac{f^{(n)}(\xi)(x-\xi)^{n-1}(x-a)}{(n-1)!} \text{ where } a \leq \xi \leq x, \quad \text{ ( Cauch's form )} $$

This result holds if $f(x)$ has continuous derivatives of order $n$ at last. If $\lim_{n \to +\infty}R_n = 0$, the infinite series obtained is called Taylor series for $f(x)$ about $x = a$. If $a = 0$ the series is often called a Maclaurin series.

Binomial series

$$ \begin{aligned} (a + x)^n &= a^n + na^{n-1} + \frac{n(n-1)}{2!} a^{n-2}x^2 + \frac{n(n-1)(n-2)}{3!}a^{n-3}x^3+\cdots \\ &= a^n + { n \choose 1} a^{n-1}x + { n \choose 2} a^{n-2}x^2 + { n \choose 3} a^{n-3}x^3 + \cdots \end{aligned} $$

Special cases of binomial series

$$ (1 + x)^{-2} = 1 - 2x + 3x^2 - 4x^3 + \cdots \quad -1 < x < 1 $$
$$ (1 + x)^{-3} = 1 - 3x + 6x^2 - 10x^3 + \cdots \quad -1 < x < 1 $$
$$ (1 + x)^{-1/2} = 1 - \frac{1}{2}x + \frac{1\cdot 3}{2\cdot 4}x^2 - \frac{1\cdot 3 \cdot 5}{2\cdot 4 \cdot 6}x^3 + \cdots \quad -1 < x \leq 1 $$
$$ (1 + x)^{1/2} = 1 + \frac{1}{2}x - \frac{1}{2\cdot 4}x^2 + \frac{1\cdot 3}{2\cdot 4 \cdot 6}x^3 + \cdots \quad -1 < x \leq 1 $$
