C. Maclaurin. A Scottish mathematician gained his master degree at age 17, and his major mathematics' work arise from his special knowledge in Newton's ideas and the formulation of Newton's methods.

However, C. Maclaurin also contributed to the astronomy science and helped to improve maps and invented some mechanical devices.

My mathematics python's programs is a set of Maclaurin's series to compute some of the most important functions in calculus.

Though, the computation of an infinite sum which give the value of a function in terms of the derivatives evaluated at a special case where x0 = 0,in contrast with Taylor series.

Hyperbolic functions are very common in the engineering field and they are related to trigonometric functions, thus, trigonometric functions could be expressed in terms of exponential(x) The hyperbolic cosine cosh(x) =(e^x + e^-x)/2.
