Quick Reference

A series a0+a1x+a2x2+a3x3+…+anxn+…, in ascending powers of x, with coefficients a0, a1, a2,…, is a power series in x. For example, the geometric series 1+x+x2+…+xn+…is a power series; this has a sum to infinity (see series) only if −1 < x < 1. Further examples of power series are given in Appendix 4. Notice that it is necessary to say for what values of x each series has the given sum; this is the case with any power series.
