Hi: I have 2 questions about Power Series. The 1st one is a h/w problem and the 2nd one is an example from a textbook which I am having difficulty to figure out. Problem1: Given a power series g(x) = sum(0 to inf) of x^i/i!. Determine interval of convergence and compute g'(x). Problem1 Solution: The 1st part I did - it is from -infinity to +infinity. To compute g'(x) is it just ix^i-1 /i! ? If not, plz advise. Problem 2: This is from Thomas' Calculus textbook on pg 669 (I am paraphrasing) They are saying that 1/1+x = Sum ( 0 to inf) of (-1)^i * x^i. Given above we can see that log(1+x) = sum (0 to inf) of (-1)^i * x^i+1 / i+1 Problem 2 Questions Now this 1st part of the question, I proved as follows and I would like to know if it is right. Sum (0 to inf) of (-1^i)*x^i = Sum (1 to inf) of (-x^i). This is just a geometric series and it converges 1/1+x if |x| <1. Is this right? For the second part: 1/1+x (given |x| <1): 1-x+x^2-x^3... If I integrate each term above, I will get it to the series (-1^i)*x^i+1 / i+1. I am not sure about this approach. Would this be a right way of proving it.
