Taylor series

[′tā·lər ‚sir·ēz]
(mathematics)
The Taylor series corresponding to a function ƒ(x) at a point x0 is the infinite series whose n th term is (1/ n !)·ƒ(n)(x0)(x-x0) n , where ƒ(n)(x) denotes the n th derivative of ƒ(x).

Resistance charts based upon model tests of a series of ships derived by altering the proportions of a single parent form; used to study the effects of these alterations on resistance to the ship's motion, and to predict the powering requirements for new ships.

After that, the constraint Eqs: (30)-(36) and the second equation in (51) should be linearized to the 1st-order Taylor series at [e.sub.D]=[e.sub.Dr], [lambda]=0, and combined with Equation (57), [e.sub.R], [e.sub.D] and [lambda] can be solved quickly.
