f(x)=f(a)+(x-a)f'(a)+(x-a)^2f"(a)/2!+(x-a)^3f"'(a)/3!+...

Using the above formula, any function can be expanded in terms of powers of (x-a), provided that all derivatives of f(x) are defined at x=a.

Note: logx can not be expanded in terms of powers of x, because the derivatives of logx are not defined at x=0.

I think you mean log x cannot be expanded about zero in a series of nonnegative powers.mustafa said:Note: logx can not be expanded in terms of powers of x, because the derivatives of logx are not defined at x=0.

example can be done via the log(1+x) series |x|<1

x-x^2/2+x^3/3...

x-x^2/2+x^3/3...
