**Non analytic function???**

**1. Homework Statement**

I was set this question as part of an extra problem sheet by my maths teacher, and i dont know where to start. He said its like first year university maths standard, and gave me hints to use the maclaurins and binomial series. Im just a bit stuck... PLEASE HELP... I found an example of a non analytical function on this forum, but just confused me!

the question...

Consider the function

f(x) = "e− 1

x2 if x "= 0

0 if x = 0

.

Calculate the Maclaurin series of f and show that it does not converge to f(x) for x "= 0. In

particular f is not an analytic function.

**2. Homework Equations**

Maclaurins series

Binomial expansion
