* In physics we use the term power series to refer to both Taylor and MacLaurin and Laurent series.     * In physics we use the term power series to refer to both Taylor and MacLaurin and Laurent series.
* Power series are a valuable way to //approximate// a function at a point, and are a strong tool for physics sense-making.     * Power series are a valuable way to //approximate// a function at a point, and are a strong tool for physics sense-making.
+      * While a function might not be integrable, the power series of the function can be integrated term by term.
* The terms and coefficients are labeled as 0th, 1st, 2nd, ... //order//, referring to the exponent.     * The terms and coefficients are labeled as 0th, 1st, 2nd, ... //order//, referring to the exponent.
* Expanding to \$n\$th order means that all terms up to \$z^n\$ should be calculated.       * Expanding to \$n\$th order means that all terms up to \$z^n\$ should be calculated.
