Mathematical Series
EXERCISES
Exercise 10.1. Show that in the series of Eq. (10.4) any
term of the series is equal to the sum of all the terms
following it. ( Hint: Factor a factor out of all of the following
terms so that they will equal this factor times the original
series, whose value is now known.)
Let the given term be denoted by
term =
b. 0.001%.
0.001% of 1.64993 is equal to 0.00016449. The
n = 79 term is equal to 0.0001602, so we need the
partial sum S79 . However, this partial sum is equal to
1.6324, so again this approximation does not work very
well.

which is known to be convergent and to equal
π 2 6/ = 1.64993 · · ·. Using Eq. (10.5) as an approximation,
determine which partial sum approximates the series to
a. 1%
1% of 1.64993 is equal to 0.016449. The n = 8 term is
equal to 0.015625, so we need the partial sum S8 , which
is equal to 1.2574· · ·. The series is slowly convergent
and S8 is equal to 1.5274, so this approximation does
not work very well.

Determine how well this series is approximated by S2 ,S5 ,
and S10 .
This is a geometric series, so the sum is

The partial sums are

Exercise 10.5. Show that the geometric series converges
if r 2 ≺ 1.
If r is positive, we apply the ratio test:
an+1
lim
=r
n→∞ an
If r 2 ≺ 1 and if r is positive, then r ≺ 1, so the series
converges. If r is negative, apply the alternating series test.
Each term is smaller than the previous term and approaches
zero as you go further into the series, so the series converges.

Exercise 10.9. Find the Taylor series for ln (x), expanding
about x = 2, and show that the radius of convergence for
this series is equal to 2, so that the series can represent the
function in the region 0 ≺ x 4.
The first term is determined by letting x = 2 in which
case all of the terms except for a0 vanish:
a0 = ln (2)
The first derivative of ln (x) is 1/x, which equals 1/2 at
x = 2. The second derivative is −1/x 2 , which equals −1/4
at x = 2. The third derivative is 2!/x 3 , which equals 1/4 at
x = 1. The derivatives follow a regular pattern,

The function is not analytic at x = 0, so the series is
not valid at x = 0. For positive values of x the series is
alternating, so we apply the alternating series test:

If the second term is smaller than 1% of the first term
(which was the only one used in the approximation) the
approximation should be adequate. By trial and error, we
find that if X 2 = 0.019, the second term is equal to
0.0095 = 0.95% of the first term.
