You may use data sets to include tutorials if you wish, as I fail to see a complete implementation in place.Documentation at http://octave.sourceforge.net/symbolic/function/@sym/taylor.html would be helpful if it included more clear examples, preferably ones which are complete.How does this work please?See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taylor_series.f=[1,3,3] f = 1 3 3 octave:2> g = taylor(1,'expansionPoint',1,'order',4)Error:
error: 'taylor' undefined near line 1 column 5What does this error mean please?
I am using http://octaveonline.net/.
See post at http://math.stackexchange.com/questions/209320/wheredothefactorialscomefrominthetaylorseries.
"'taylor' undefined" means it can't find the function, taylor. Do you have the symbolic package installed and loaded?
If you do
pkg list
do you see a star next to symbolic?
