  Taylor series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Taylor series, power series, and infinite series expansions of functions may have been first discovered in India by Madhava in the 14th century.
He is also thought to have discovered the power series of the radius, diameter, circumference, angle θ, π and π/4, along with rational approximations of π, and infinite continued fractions.
The Maclaurin series was named after Colin Maclaurin, a professor in Edinburgh, who published the special case of the Taylor result in the 17th century.

 Taylor Series
Then we require that at c, the power series and the function agree at c; and that all derivatives of the power series equal the corresponding derivatives of F(x).
The Taylor series for F(x) at c is not necessarily equal to F(x) on the series's interval of convergence.
In practice the Taylor series does converge to the function for most functions of interest, so that the Taylor series for a function is an excellent way to work that function.

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.

series once we get out of the review, but they are a nice way to get us back into the swing of dealing with power series.  By time most students reach this stage in their mathematical career they’ve not had to deal with power series for at least a semester or two.  Remembering how
series work will be a very convenient way to get comfortable with power series before we start looking at differential equations.
series we do not multiply the 4 through on the second term or square out the third term.  All the terms with the exception of the constant should contain an x-2.

 SparkNotes: The Taylor Series: Approximating Functions With Polynomials
The theory of Taylor polynomials and Taylor series rests upon once crucial insight: in order to approximate a function, it is often enough to approximate its value and its derivatives (first, second, third, and so on) at one point.
This series, called the Taylor series of f at 0, is a special kind of power series, an object that was explored in the last chapter.

Before working any examples of Taylor Series we first need to address the assumption that a Taylor Series will in fact exist for a given function.  Let’s first get some notation out of the way first.
This idea of renumbering the series terms as we did in the previous example isn’t used all that often, but occasionally is very useful.  There is one more series where we need to do it so let’s take a look at that so we can get one more example down of renumbering series terms.
So, we’ve seen quite a few examples of Taylor Series to this point and in all of them we where able to find general formulas for the series.  This won’t always be the case.  To see an example of one that doesn’t have a general formula check out the last example in the next section.
