Famous Series

Geometric Series

P-Series

Harmonic Series

  • diverges
  • this is a special case of the P-Series for P=1

Alternating Harmonic Series

  • converges to ln(1+1) = ln(2) using series for ln(1+x) below.

Exponential

where

Sin

Cos

ln (1+x)

  • you can arrive at this relation by integrating a Geometric Series in -t term-by-term.

  • if x=-1 , i.e. ln(1+(-1)) = ln(0) , this is the negative of the Harmonic Series which diverges toward -∞

arctan (x)

  • you can arrive at this relation by integrating a Geometric Series in -t2 term-by-term.
