    The concept of a Taylor series was formally introduced by the English mathematician Brook Taylor in 1715.

    If the Taylor series is centered at zero, then that series is also called a Maclaurin series, named after the Scottish mathematician Colin Maclaurin,

    (1) Brook Taylor, for whom the Taylor Series is named
    (2) Colin Maclaurin (sometimes spelled M’Laurine)

    A Taylor series centered at 0 is called a Maclaurin series.

    Brook Taylor of Taylor series, which when centred at 0, becomes the MacLaurin series after Colin Maclaurin.

    (1) is Brook Taylor of Taylor series fame
    (2) is Colin Maclaurin of the Maclaurin series, a special case of Taylor series where a = 0.


  19. Aditya S

    (1) Brook Taylor – Taylor series to find a sum of infinite series

    (2) Colin Maclaurin – Taylor series at 0 is Maclaurin series

    Hint : The Greek philosopher Zeno considered the problem of summing an infinite series to achieve a finite result, but rejected it as an impossibility: the result was Zeno’s paradox.

    (1)’s and (2)’s series were used to refute the Zeno’s proof
