Taylor Series Interact

Description

This interact allows the user to adjust the order of a given Taylor series to observe the effect on the plotted series.

Sage Cell

Code

var('x')
x0  = 0
f   = sin(x)*e^(-x)
p   = plot(f,-1,5, thickness=2)
dot = point((x0,f(x=x0)),pointsize=80,rgbcolor=(1,0,0))
@interact
def _(order=[1..12]):
    ft = f.taylor(x,x0,order)
    pt = plot(ft,-1, 5, color='green', thickness=2)
    pretty_print(html(r'$f(x)\;=\;%s$'%latex(f)))
    pretty_print(html(r'$\hat{f}(x;%s)\;=\;%s+\mathcal{O}(x^{%s})$'%(x0,latex(ft),order+1)))
    show(dot + p + pt, ymin = -.5, ymax = 1)
