SeriesTermGoal

SeriesTermGoal

is an option for Asymptotic, DiscreteAsymptotic and similar functions that specifies the number of desired terms in an asymptotic approximation.

Details

  • The default setting of SeriesTermGoal is Automatic.
  • Asymptotics functions typically return a leading asymptotic approximation with the default setting.
  • Asymptotic series approximations with a specific order n can be obtained by setting SeriesTermGoal to n.
