    In this video I recap on power series and the conditions that it converges, that is, its radius and interval of convergence. A power series has terms of the form: constant * (x - a)n. There are only three possibilities for its convergence: Either it converges only for x = a, or converges for all x, or it converges for |x - a| is less than the radius of convergence R. In the first case, the radius of convergence is considered as R = 0, and the second case it is R = infinity. The interval of convergence has 4 possibilities, since at |x - a| = R, the series can converge or diverge. Thus the interval of convergence is either (a - R, a + R), (a - R, a + R], [a - R, a + R), or [a - R, a + R]. I also graphically show this in the video.

    The timestamps of key parts of the video are listed below:

    • Question 8: 0:00
    • (a) General form of a power series: 0:20
    • (b) Radius of convergence of a power series: 1:11
      • Summary for the radius of convergence: 6:28
    • (c) Interval of convergence of a power series: 7:40
