    Difficulty finding power series representation of a function

    As the title says, I'm having a lot of trouble finding a power series representation of a function. Here it is: And here's my attempt at a solution: I had a lot of trouble trying to reindex the summations such that I'd have a single summation at the end. This is what I ultimately got...

    Matrix representation by function

    I have one matrix (103x6) with 5 inputs (real numbers) and one output (output can take integer values from 0 to 4 ). I need to represent matrix in form of function. Any ideas?

    Representation for A4

    Can you give me some hint about how to represent alternating group 4? I know we can define { a b c d } to four 3-cycle and then find the relation between the four 3-cycles. But it is really troublesome. Another thought is: since S4 is isomorphic to the 4*4 permutation matrix. We can use...

    Do the cosets of a subgroup always form a representation of the group?

    G = {g1, g2, g3, g4, g5, g6, g7, E} Lets say the cosets of a subgroup H1 of G are: {g1, g2} {g3, g4} {g5, g6} {g7, E} so G = { {g1, g2}, {g3, g4}, {g5, g6}, {g7, E} } = { a, b, c, d} so the representation { a, b, c, d} has order 4 and the subgroup H1 has 4 cosets My question is...

    Proof involving diagonal matrix representation with respect to some basis

    Let $V$ be $n$ dimensional vector space, $T:V\rightarrow V$ a linear map, and let $B=\{b_1,b_2,...,b_n\}$ be a basis for that vector space. Suppose $[T]_B$ (the matrix representation of $T$ with respect to $B$) is diagonal. I'm trying to prove that $T(b_i)=a_{ii}b_i$, where $a_{ii}$ is the...

    Find matrix elements and expansion for operator in position representation

    In 1-D let TL be an operator defined on the position eigenstates |x> such that TL|x>=|x+L>. Find the matrix elements TL(x,x')=<x'|TL|x> and construct an explicit expansion for this operator in the position representation. Show that “in the position representation” <x|T_L|\psi >= \psi (x-L)...

    Why is this series representation wrong?

    Hello, I am asked to represent \int \frac{e^x}{x}dx as a power series and I proceeded as follows: We know: e^x = \sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \frac{x^n}{n!} So, \frac{e^x}{x}=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \frac{x^n}{x\cdot n!} = \sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \frac{x^{n-1}}{n!} Then, \int \frac{e^x}{x}dx = \int \left...

    Help on parametric representation

    Hi all! Can anyone help me with the following question on parametric representation: A circle of radius r is placed at the top of a ramp of negative gradient and angle θ = π/6 rad. At t = 0 the circle is at rest with its centre at coordinates (0, r) and then it starts to rotate clockwise...

    Representation of p-adic integers using primitive roots

    Let p be an odd prime and let r be any positive integer that is a primitive root module p^2. Let X_p = \varprojlim \Bbb{Z} / (p-1)p^n \Bbb{Z} be the inverse limit of the rings \Bbb{Z} / (p-1)p^n \Bbb{Z}. This is useful because for any unit u \in \Bbb{Z}/p^n\Bbb{Z}, there exists K \in \Bbb{Z} /...

    IF Statement Representation

    Apologies, if I have put this in the wrong section but I don't know enough about Maths to know what kind of question it is! I need to represent an IF statement formula in an alternative way as the software I am using doesn't allow IF statements. It does however allow all of these functions...

    Representation of a group acting on finite sets?

    Hi, I'm just doing a course in the Representation of Finite Groups, and in the notes, we are given the following definition of a representation which is not actually given a name: Let G be a finite group, M a finite set, and let G act on M. For F some field we can construct a representation of...

    ODEs, Adjoint forms and matrix representation

    Hi MHF members, I was looking up in the books I have but I could not go anywhere. Consider the higher-order ode L[y]:=y^{(n)}+\sum_{k=0}^{n-1}p_{n-k}y^{(k)}=0, which has the matrix form \pmb{Y}^{\prime}+\pmb{A}\pmb{Y}=\pmb{0}, where \pmb{Y}=\left( \begin{array}{c} y \\ y^{\prime} \\ \vdots \\...

    Power Series Representation

    I understand fully part a and b. But for part c they just plug in 1 , why is that? Why didnt they plug in 2 or 3 because those are between -5 and 5? Then how do they calculate the sum by plugging in 1? Thanks

    Power Series Representation

    I need help finding the power series representation of ln(root(4-x2)). I have gathered that I pull out the root 4, so I'll have ln(2)+something, but I'm not sure where to go from there. I know that ln(1-x) is -xk/k, but I don't know how to manipulate it as far as the root part.

    Need help for a proof, related to decimal representation of a rational number

    The problem appears in Tom Apostol's Calculus, Volume 1, pages 31,32. This is introductory material, related to foundations of real number system. Quote: No proof is given and as often happens to me, contrary to the claim, I could not do the thing easily. So I need a proof that sup(S)=x. For...
