Description
93 18. Taylors Theorem  Taylors Theorem: Su ciently smooth functions can be approximated locally by polynomials. Sup- ( 1) pose ( ) has derivatives on ( ) with ( ) continuous on [ ]. (We put (0( ) = ( ); the assumptions imply existence and continuity of ( ( ) on ( ) for .) Then for [ ] there is a point between and such that 1 X ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) = ( ) ! + ( ) ! =0 What does this say when = 1?  Example: ( ) = ; expand around = 0 (Maclaurin series): ( ( ) = so that ( ) (0) = 1 94 Then for some between 0 and (i.e. | | | |) X 1 = ( )(0) + ( )( ) =0 ! ! 1 X = !+ ! =0 Write this as = ( ) + ( ) We can do this since is a, generally quite compli- cated, function of . If ( ) 0 as we P say that the series lim ( ) = =1 ! represents the function .  It is indeed true in this example tha( ) 0 as . We will later show that it does so in a nice uniform way; for now it is enough to show that it does so for any
