The positive real number corresponding to a power series expansion about some number a with the property that if x-a has absolute value less than this number the power series converges at x, and if x-a has absolute value greater than this number the power series diverges at x.

The radius of convergence of a power series is the radius of the circle of convergence. In other words, it is the number r such that the power series converges when ǀzǀ > r and diverges when ǀzǀ > r.
