							The derivative of the arc tangent isddxarctan(x)=11+x2.From the formula for geometric series (see for examplethis answer for a proof) shows that1+y+y2+y3+⋯=11−yif|y|<1.
Plugging in−x2fory, we get that
provided that|−x2|<1; that is, provided|x|<1. All the computations below are done under this hypothesis (see comments at the end).So we have that:ddxarctan(x)=1−x2+x4−x6+x8−x10+⋯if|x|<1
Because this is aTaylor series, it can be integrated term by term. That is, up to a constant, we have:
Evaluating atx=0gives0=arctan(0)=C, so we get
the equality you ask about.Note however that this does not hold forallx: it certainly works if|x|<1, by the general properties of Taylor series. But the arc tangent is defined for all real numbers. The series we have here is∑n=0∞(−1)nx2n+12n+1.
Using theRatio Test, we have that
By the Ratio Test, the series converges absolutely if|x|2<1(that is, if|x|<1) and diverges if|x|>1. Atx=1andx=−1, the series is known to converge. So the radius of convergence is1, and the equality is valid forx∈[−1,1]only (that is, if|x|≤1; we gained two points in the process).However, the arc tangent has a nice property, namely thatarctan(1x)=π2−arctan(x),
So, given a value ofxwith|x|>1, you can use this identity to computearctan(x)by computingarctan(1x)instead, and for this argument the seriesisvalid.
