Taylor expansion in physics

Quote Quote by quietrain View Post
like for example, what is the taylor expansion of x - kx where k is small
TT and ILS have done a great job of guessing what you meant, but you should probably explain what function you really wanted to expand. (The Taylor expansion of x-kx is x-kx, so that's probably not it ).
