Taylor's Theorem and Derivative Tests for Extrema and Inflection Points
Gordon, Sheldon P.
PRIMUS, v15 n1 p86-94 Mar 2005
The standard derivative tests for extrema and inflection points from Calculus I can be revisited subsequently from the perspective of Taylor polynomial approximations to provide additional insights into those tests, as well as to extend them to additional criteria. (Contains 3 figures.)
