  1. Series

    A series is, informally speaking, the sum of the terms of a sequence. Finite sequences and series have defined first and last terms, whereas infinite sequences and series continue indefinitely. In mathematics, given an infinite sequence of numbers { an }, a series is informally the result of adding all those terms together: a1 + a2 + a3 + · · ·. These can be written more compactly using the summation symbol ∑. An example is the famous series from Zeno's dichotomy and its mathematical representation: The terms of the series are often produced according to a certain rule, such as by a formula, or by an algorithm. As there are an infinite number of terms, this notion is often called an infinite series. Unlike finite summations, infinite series need tools from mathematical analysis, and specifically the notion of limits, to be fully understood and manipulated. In addition to their ubiquity in mathematics, infinite series are also widely used in other quantitative disciplines such as physics, computer science, and finance.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

[L.,—serĕre, sertum, to join.]

The Standard Electrical Dictionary

  1. Series

    (a) Arranged in succession as opposed to parallel. Thus if a set of battery jars are arranged with the zinc of one connected to the carbon of the next one for the entire number, it is said to be arranged in series. When incandescent lamps are arranged in succession so that the current goes through one after the other they are arranged in series. The opposite of parallel, q. v., or multiple arc, q. v.; it may be used as a noun or as an adjective. (b) See Electro-Chemical Series; (c) Thermo-Electric Series (d) Electrostatic Series; (e) Electro-motive Series. Synonym--Cascade Connection (but little used.)

Examples of Series in a Sentence

  1. Benjamin Netanyahu:

    We held a consultation about the series of offensive and defensive measures that we will implement to act against the grave phenomenon of shootings. They certainly challenge us, but we will provide an answer.

  2. Delle Donne:

    Washington Mystics ' didnt have Washington Mystics ' Emma Meesseman. Were a different team when shes on it, we got a really good Connecticut team coming in. Washington Mystics ' are playing really great basketball. Well focus on Washington Mystics ' and figure some things out. Washington Mystics ' Emma Meesseman was a huge reason that Washington Mystics ' were able to advance Las Vegas, winning the series on Tuesday night. Washington Mystics ' Emma Meesseman had 22 points in the clincher. Washington Mystics ' and The Sun played three times in the regular season and Connecticut won twice. Washington did win the final matchup by an eye-popping 43 points. The two teams havent played since June 29. While Washington had to work to put away Las Vegas, Connecticut cruised through the semifinals, sweeping Los Angeles in three games. After getting eliminated in single-elimination playoff games the previous few years, The Sun were determined to get one of the top two seeds and the double-bye that goes with it. After finishing with the second-best record behind Washington in the regular season, Connecticut accomplished that. The Sun have benefited by having a healthy year for their starting lineup as the team used the same five to begin every game. The Suns starting five of Jasmine Thomas, Alyssa Thomas, Shekinna Stricklen, Courtney Williams and Jonquel Jones all have the ability to have big games, making them tough to game plan against. Thats what coach Curt Miller expected when Shekinna Stricklen took over the team in 2016.

Of course he will try and do his very best but he also has to learn a lot. This is really just the start of it.
