|Dave Rusin; The Mathematical Atlas|
|A short article designed to provide an introduction to sequences and series, the most common examples of limiting processes; convergence criteria and rates of convergence are as important as finding "the answer." Particular series of interest (e.g. Taylor series of known functions) are of interest, as well as general methods for computing sums rapidly, or formally. Series can be estimated with integrals, their stability can be investigated with analysis. Manipulations of series (e.g. multiplying or inverting) are also of importance. History; applications and related fields and subfields; textbooks, reference works, and tutorials; software and tables; other web sites with this focus.|
