# Series

Series[f, {x, x0, n}]
generates a power series expansion for f about the point to order .

Series[f, {x, x0, nx}, {y, y0, ny}, ...]
successively finds series expansions with respect to x, then y, etc.

## Details and OptionsDetails and Options

• Series can construct standard Taylor series, as well as certain expansions involving negative powers, fractional powers, and logarithms.
• Series detects certain essential singularities. On[Series::esss] makes Series generate a message in this case.
• Series can expand about the point .
• Series[f, {x, 0, n}] constructs Taylor series for any function f according to the formula .
• Series effectively evaluates partial derivatives using D. It assumes that different variables are independent.
• The result of Series is usually a SeriesData object, which you can manipulate with other functions.
• Normal[series] truncates a power series and converts it to a normal expression.
• SeriesCoefficient[series, n] finds the coefficient of the n-order term.
