- Solution to the problem
- Another fun application of Power series: you can evaluate the power series of arctan(x) for x=1 and get a series converging to pi/4, hence you know a method to compute pi. This series is converging very slowly, but there are arctan identities by John Machin and others which give a series converging as fast as a geometric series.
- Solving nonhomogeneous differential equation by clever guessing
- Values of exp, sine and cosine; needed for polar coordinates
