When does a Taylor's Series not converge to its original function? the commonly given example is

[tex]e^\frac{-1}{x^2}[/tex]

But I really don't get how it works... For example if we find the series around the point x=1, then

This is the series right? However, but then the value at the point x=0 is undefined, as the denominator x cannot be zero? I really don't understand how this thing works. Thank you!
