In part 2 of Béla Lugosi's lecture on convergence of series, he continues to discuss integration of the limit function in these series or sequences. He then goes further into applying these into power series. This is a video for advanced math students who are well into Calculus and Calculus II.
Béla Lugosi teaches advanced mathematical concepts in this video. How one uses power series to solve varying kinds of problems is discussed, and Lugosi explains how this one application shows the power of power series. It also show that power series have a very important and powerful and analytical technique. A great series for any advanced mathematics student who is working in Calculus and Calculus II.
