The function A defined by
is called an Airy function after the English mathematician and astronomer Sir George Airy (1801–1892).
(a) Find the domain of the Airy function.
(b) Graph the first several partial sums on a common screen.
(c) If your CAS has built-in Airy functions, graph A on the same screen as the partial sums in part (b) and observe how the partial sums approximate A.
The domain of the function
The given series is
So, apply the ratio test and find the interval of convergence.
The given series is
The graph of several partial sums of this series
The graph of and the partial sums as in part (b) on the same screen using CAS
