Calculating error of the approximate formula in calculations

I have an exact equation: \begin{equation} a = \sqrt{1 + x^2 - \sqrt{(1 + x^2)^2 - 2 x^2 \cos^2\theta}}\tag{1} \end{equation} and its approximation: \begin{equation} a = \dfrac{x \cos^2\...

Polynomial Approximation from Chebyshev coefficients

I would like to expand a function $f(r)$ in the domain $[0,R]$, around the points $r =0$, and $r = R$ in the following manner $f(r = 0) = \Sigma_{i=0,i = even}^{imax} f_i (r/R)^i$ and $f(r = R) = ...
