Hi anonimnystefy;

That thread got closed by mistake. It is open now for business.

Did you get as far as a catenary? If you find the equation of the catenary and Taylorize it you will be close. See if you can get it from there. Tell me what you think about it.

Hi

what about?i see the pic.it looks parabolish.

x^2/2 +1,which is a parabola.

### Re: Oh,Oh,Oh,merry analysis!!!

That is correct! Since that series is an approximation of cosh(x) anywhere we truncate it, is also an approximation. The further we go the better we expect to do. Now you see why Galilieo was fooled into thinking the catenary was a parabola.

That series is a good approximation at x = 0 and close to that. How about for any x?

### Re: Oh,Oh,Oh,merry analysis!!!

hi bobbym

it's not so good for very large terms because the difference grows 'cubicly' so as x gets larger,the difference becomes much much larger.

### Re: Oh,Oh,Oh,merry analysis!!!

Yes, that is true for that particular series.You can get around that and we are just trying to demonstrate that a parabola is a good approximation. We do not need a high precision algorithm.

hi bobbym

|cosh(x)-1-x^2/2|<c*|x^3|

so (cosh(x)-1-x^2/2) is O(x^3).thus,my statement is correct.

Yes, but that is only the expansion around zero. It is not the series that we want at 5 for an example.

### Re: Oh,Oh,Oh,merry analysis!!!

maybe we could take the taylor's series expansion arounf 5 or a in a general case.

### Re: Oh,Oh,Oh,merry analysis!!!

Exact a Mundo! We can expand around c.

Now since cosh(c) and sinh(c) are constants we can substitute. a = cosh(c) and b = sinh(c).

Truncating at x^2 we get:

which again means for any value of x it can be approximated by a quadratic. This is not exactly true in a rigorous sense but for the purposes of your question we will allow it.
