  Power series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
These power series arise primarily in analysis, but also occur in combinatorics (under the name of generating functions) and in electrical engineering (under the name of the Z-transform).
Once a function is given as a power series, it is continuous wherever it converges and is differentiable on the interior of this set.
Every power series with a positive radius of convergence is analytic on the interior of its region of convergence.

 Formal power series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
However, as a formal power series, we may ignore this completely; all that is relevant is the sequence of coefficients [1, −3, 5, −7, 9, −11,...].
In a sense, all formal power series are Taylor series.
It is a topological field, and its relationship to formal power series is analogous to the relationship between power series and Laurent series.

 Power Series
Power series are infinitely differentiable functions inside their disk of convergence.
To obtain the derivative of a power series, one may differentiate it term by term.
On each compact subset of that disk, the derived series converges uniformly and absolutely to the derivative of the function to which the power series converges.

The POWER series microprocessors are used as the main CPU in many of IBM's servers, minicomputers, workstations, and supercomputers.
The POWER architecture was used to develop (and remains very similar to) the PowerPC architecture, used in later Apple Macintosh computers, some IBM workstations, as well as a number of embedded applications.
The POWER design is descended directly from the earlier IBM 801 CPU, widely considered to be the first true RISC chip design.

 Taylor Series
You should also be familiar with the geometric series, the notion of a power series, and in particular the concept of the radius of convergence of a power series.
This is where the notion of the radius of convergence of a power series will become useful.
In an earlier example (the example is almost identical!), we saw that this power series has a radius of convergence of 1.

 15.5 Power Series
Power series supply us with a new way to describe functions: we can specify the coefficients of each power in the series.
We can also look at power series for which we subtract some value, call it z, from the variable x.
Since series converge when this ratio is any factor fixed factor less than 1, power series typically converge up to some maximum magnitude of the expansion variable, which value is the limiting ratio of

A power series is a series of increasing powers of x, with each term multiplied by a number (called a coefficient).
The number of the subscript is always the same as the power of x that the coefficient multiplies.
Other functions may also be expressed as power series, as we'll see in later sections.
