- 11. Works for Quadratic Approximations<br />
- 12. f(x) = sin(x)Degree 1<br />
- 13. f(x) = sin(x)Degree 3<br />
- 14. f(x) = sin(x)Degree 5<br />
- 15. f(x) = sin(x)Degree 7<br />
- 16. f(x) = sin(x)Degree 11<br />
- 17. Implications<br />If fand g have the same value and all of the same derivatives at a point, then they must be the same function!<br />
- 18. Proof: If f and g are smooth functions that agree over some interval, they MUST be the same function<br />Let f and g be two smooth functions that agree for some open interval (a,b), but not over all of R<br />Define h as the difference, f – g, and note that h is smooth, being the difference of two smooth functions. Also h=0 on (a,b), but h≠0 at other points in R<br />Without loss of generality, we will form S, the set of all x>a, such that f(x)≠0 <br />Note that a is a lower bound for this set, S, and being a subset of R, S is complete so S has a real greatest lower bound, call it c.<br />c, being a greatest lower bound of S, is also an element of S, since S is closed<br />Now we see that h=0 on (a,c), but h≠0 at c. So, h is discontinuous at c, so then h cannot be smooth<br />Thus we have reached a contradiction, and so f and g must agree everywhere!<br />
- 19. Suppose f(x) can be rewritten as a power series…<br />
- 20. Entirety (Analytic Functions)<br />A function f(x) is said to be entire if it is equal to its Taylor Series everywhere<br />Entire<br />sin(x)<br />Not Entire<br />log(1+x)<br />
- 21. Proof: sin(x) is entire<br />Maclaurin Series<br />sin(0)=0<br />sin’(0)=1<br />sin’’(0)=0<br />sin’’’(0)=-1<br />sin’’’’(0)=0<br />sin’’’’’(0)=1<br />sin’’’’’’(0)=0<br />… etc.<br />
- 22. Proof: sin(x) is entire<br />Lagrange formula for the remainder:<br />Let be k+1 times differentiable on (a,x) and continuous on [a,x]. Then <br /> for some z in (a,x)<br />
- 23. Proof: sin(x) is entire <br />First, sin(x) is continuous and infinitely differentiable over all of R<br />If we look at the Taylor Polynomial of degree k<br />Note though for all z in R<br />
- 24. Proof: sin(x) is entire<br />However, as k goes to infinity, we see<br />Applying the Squeeze Theorem to our original equation, we obtain that as k goes to infinity<br />and thus sin(x) is entire since it is equal to its Taylor series<br />
