Chapter 08: Infinite Series

Geometric series

Notes of the book Mathematical Method written by S.M. Yusuf, A. Majeed and M. Amin, published by Ilmi Kitab Khana, Lahore - PAKISTAN.

Infinite series are of great importance in both pure and applied mathematics. They play a significant role in Physics and engineering. In fact many functions can be represented by infinite series. The theory of infinite series is developed through the use of special kind of function called sequence.
