Let W be an integration from 0 to x.

We^x = e^x -1

1 = e^x - We^x

1 = (1-W)e^x

1/(1-W) = e^x ***

Using this we can get that e^x = (1 + W + W^2 + W^3 + ... + W^n), which is (1 + W + W^2/2! + W^3/3! + ... + W^n/n!)

Is this a valid form of getting a series expansion? Is there a problem somewhere? And, is there a name for it?

Thanks.
