# Multivariate taylor

1. Homework Statement

Calculate the taylor polynom of order 3 at (0,0,0) of the function with well-known series (that means I can't just take the derivatives)

$$f(x,y,z)=\sqrt{e^{-x}+\sin y+z^{2}}$$

2. Homework Equations

3. The Attempt at a Solution

I wrote the functions within the square root as taylor polynomials and got

$$f(x,y,z)=\sqrt{1+-x+\frac{1}{2}x^{2}-\frac{1}{6}x^{3}+y-\frac{1}{6}y^{3}+z^{2}}$$

But then I don't really know how to "remove" the square root. I already tried to just plug the term inside the square root in the taylor expansion of $$\sqrt{1+x}$$ but that didn't really work out very well.

Why did you do that? What not just write $f(x,y,z)= (e^{-x}+ sin(y)+ z^2)^{1/2}$and calculate the derivatives? benorin Homework Helper Reference The formula for the Taylor series expansion of [itex]f(x,y,z)$ about the point $(x_0,y_0,z_0)$ is $$f(x,y,z)=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}\sum_{k=0}^{\infty}\sum_{j=0}^{\infty} \frac{\partial ^{n+k+j}f (x_0,y_0,z_0)}{\partial x^{n}\partial y^{k}\partial z^{j}} \cdot\frac{(x-x_0)^{n}}{n!} \cdot\frac{(y-y_0)^{k}}{k!}\cdot\frac{(z-z_0)^{j}}{j!}$$​ Use To compute the Tayor polynomial of order 3, only write out the terms for which $n+k+j\le 3$. As stated I have to use "well-known series" to arrive at the taylor polynomial; thus, I'm not allowed to just take derivatives. HallsofIvy Science Advisor Homework Helper Sorry, I missed reading that part! Okay, what is the Taylor's series for [iitex]\sqrt{x}$?
