(mathematics)
The theorem that under certain conditions a real or complex function can be represented, in a neighborhood of a point where it is infinitely differentiable, as a power series whose coefficients involve the various order derivatives evaluated at that point.

In particular, they explain three principles that they use throughout but that students today may not be familiar with: the square root of minus one, the exponential series and its connection with the binomial theorem, and Taylor's theorem.
In such a case, the Taylor's theorem ensures that the remainder term e, that is the approximation error given by the difference between the real value attained by the function and its Taylor polynomial, is negligible if compared to the size of [(x - a).
The point is that Lagrange [9], to develop his method, applied Taylor's theorem to the side condition [phi]([x.
Cauchy was the first to prove Taylor's theorem rigorously, establishing his well-known form of the remainder.
9) we shall give an independent proof for the local, quadratic convergence of Newton's method for finding roots by showing that an analogue of Taylor's theorem can be applied to [N.

The usual form of Taylor's theorem is then given, leading to the observation that:
