  Encyclopedia: Series (mathematics)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
In mathematics, a series is often represented as the sum of a sequence of terms.
Series may be finite, or infinite; in the first case they may be handled with elementary algebra, but infinite series require tools from mathematical analysis if they are to be applied in anything more than a tentative way.
In mathematics, a series is the sum of a sequence of terms.

 Series (mathematics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fourier series were being investigated as the result of physical considerations at the same time that Gauss, Abel, and Cauchy were working out the theory of infinite series.
Series for the expansion of sines and cosines, of multiple arcs in powers of the sine and cosine of the arc had been treated by Jakob Bernoulli (1702) and his brother Johann Bernoulli (1701) and still earlier by Viète.
Formal power series are also used in combinatorics to describe and study sequences that are otherwise difficult to handle; this is the method of generating functions.

 Harmonic series (mathematics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
In mathematics, the harmonic series is the infinite series
(This proof, due to Nicole Oresme, is a high point of medieval mathematics.) Even the sum of the reciprocals of the prime numbers diverges to infinity (although that is much harder to prove; see proof that the sum of the reciprocals of the primes diverges).
This is a consequence of the Taylor series of the natural logarithm.

 AllRefer.com - series (Mathematics) - Encyclopedia
An infinite series is a sum of infinitely many terms, e.g., the infinite series 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 + 1/16 + ….
Some infinite series converge to a certain value called its limit; i.e., as one adds together progressively more terms, these sums (called the partial sums of the series) form a sequence of values that progressively approach the limit.
Such a series is 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/4 + …, for even though the terms become very small, enough of them added together will give a value greater than any number that can be named.

 Review: Life By The Numbers
A series about mathematics on public television is a very brave undertaking in an age where too many people associate the subject with trauma in high school (the fear of "calculus" in particular seems to be North American).
A PBS station in Georgia defended their decision not to bring this series to the state whose students standardized mathematics scores are ranked among the lowest in the nation by claiming that the programs were "too esoteric".
Throughout the series there is a conscious effort to downplay "the geek factor" and stress the human element and the excitement quotient.

The careful documentation of the discoveries and history of mathematics is of overwhelming importance, especially in modern times where the advances are taking place so rapidly that the historical roots of some branches of mathematics seem to be getting lost.
The contributions of the Arabs are particularly important for later developments in the West, as it was they who revived Greek philosophy and mathematics and consequently changed dramatically the role of mathematics in Europe.
Mathematical research now is done by both human and machine, and no doubt this century, and others beyond it, will result in brilliant developments.

 \bf{}Mathematics and Art : The film series
It is objected that art has nothing to do with mathematics; that mathematics, beside being by its very nature as dry as dust and as unemotional, is a branch of speculative thought and as such in direct antithesis to those emotive values inherent in aesthetics...
And here is the definition of what must be a mathematical approach to the arts: Ït must not be supposed that an art based on the principles of mathematics, such as I have just adumbrated, is in any sense the same thing as a plastic or pictorial interpretation of the latter.
A lot of these mathematical ideas are very interesting and beautiful when converted to 3 dimensional form, such as this projection which is not quite correct, of a 4 dimensional figure, the analogue of a ball, this is a more correct one, which gives you the same form.

Typically, a queueing model describes (1) the system's physical configuration, and (2) the stochastic (that is, probabilistic or statistical) nature of the demands, by specifying the variability in the arrival process and the service requirements.
Mathematical analysis of simple queueing models often reveals surprising effects caused by this inherent randomness.
