3. Augustin-Jean Fresnel (1788 1827) was an engineer, mathematician, and French commisioner of
lighthouses. He is fampus for his work in optics, especially the theory of diraction and for developing
Fresnell lens. Originally work for lighthouses, Fresnel lenses are still used in many customer items
including computer and overhead projector. The integral

occurs in Fresnels theory of diraction, and is known as Fresnel integral.
(a) Write Maclaurin series for sinx x :
(b) Use the Maclaurin series for sin x to evaluate the Fresnel integral as innite series.
(c) Estimate the Fresnel integral to within 10 3 (Hint: your series should be alternating).
