# Converting Power Series to Normal Expressions

 Normal[expr] convert a power series to a normal expression

Converting power series to normal expressions.

Power series in the Wolfram Language are represented in a special internal form, which keeps track of such attributes as their expansion order.

For some purposes, you may want to convert power series to normal expressions. From a mathematical point of view, this corresponds to truncating the power series, and assuming that all higherorder terms are zero.

This generates a power series, with four terms.
 In[1]:=
 Out[1]=
Squaring the power series gives you another power series, with the appropriate number of terms.
 In[2]:=
 Out[2]=
Normal truncates the power series, giving a normal expression.
 In[3]:=
 Out[3]=
You can now apply standard algebraic operations.
 In[4]:=
 Out[4]=
 SeriesCoefficient[series,n] give the coefficient of the n order term in a power series

Extracting coefficients of terms in power series.

This gives the coefficient of in the original power series.
 In[5]:=
 Out[5]=
This gives the coefficient for the term in the Taylor expansion of the function about zero.
 In[6]:=
 Out[6]=
