Multivariable Taylor expansion does not work as expected

The basic multivariable Taylor expansion formula around a point is as follows: $$ f(\mathbf r + \mathbf a) = f(\mathbf r) + (\mathbf a \cdot \nabla )f(\mathbf r) + \frac{1}{2!}(\mathbf a \cdot ...

Limiting form of a polynomial expression

When simplifying an expression by hand, a trick that is often used is to remove terms that are lower powers of the independent variable, for instance, as $x \rightarrow \infty$, $x^2 + x$ becomes ...
