  1. Power series

    In mathematics, a power series is an infinite series of the form where an represents the coefficient of the nth term, c is a constant, and x varies around c. This series usually arises as the Taylor series of some known function. In many situations c is equal to zero, for instance when considering a Maclaurin series. In such cases, the power series takes the simpler form These power series arise primarily in analysis, but also occur in combinatorics and in electrical engineering. The familiar decimal notation for real numbers can also be viewed as an example of a power series, with integer coefficients, but with the argument x fixed at 1⁄10. In number theory, the concept of p-adic numbers is also closely related to that of a power series.
