The Taylor and Maclaurin series is apart of the math field. They are both individual series in their own right, but a Taylor series is able to transform into a Maclaurin series. Taylor series is named after the mathematician Brook Taylor. He was prominent in the 1700s. His series states that a function is represented in the total of the terms that come from the functions single point value. The Maclaurin series was named after Colin Maclaurin. He was a mathematician during 1800. He expands the Taylor series by centering the point of zero and focusing on the function of zero.
