Description (last modified by )
The function *series* can not give the power series expansion of f(x)=(1+arctan(x))(1/x) , while *taylor* succeeds. Note that the function f can be continuously extended at 0.
sage: taylor((1+arctan(x))**(1/x), x, 0, 3) 1/16*x^3*e + 1/8*x^2*e - 1/2*x*e + e sage: ((1+arctan(x))**(1/x)).series(x==0, 3) RuntimeError: power::eval(): division by zero
Subsidiary question: why the functions *taylor* and *series* perform similar tasks, but differently?

This was fixed upstream in ginac. The changes will be in the next pynac release. Patch with doctest is attached.

New pynac package with the fix is at #11317.

This is nice, and the other examples given by the author also did not work before but now do:
sage: (cos(x)^(sin(x)/x)).series(x==0,9) 1 + (-1/2)*x^2 + 1/8*x^4 + (-1/30)*x^6 + 631/120960*x^8 + Order(x^9) sage: ((1+x)^(1/x)).series(x==0,9) (e) + (-1/2*e)*x + (11/24*e)*x^2 + (-7/16*e)*x^3 + (2447/5760*e)*x^4 + (-959/2304*e)*x^5 + (238043/580608*e)*x^6 + (-67223/165888*e)*x^7 + (559440199/1393459200*e)*x^8 + Order(x^9)
Also, the new series does correctly approximate the original function near x=0 :)

Looks like this is in Ginac/Pynac?. But maybe it makes sense not to have an answer here? After all, the technical definition would imply that f doesn't have a Taylor series there, if it doesn't even exist. Probably Maxima is more lenient about such things.
