Abstract: For a power series let denote the maximum modulus of the zeros of the nth partial sum of f and let denote the smallest modulus of a zero of the nth normalized remainder . The present paper investigates the relationships between the growth of the analytic function f and the behavior of the sequences and . The principal growth measure used is that of Rtype: if is a nondecreasing sequence of positive numbers such that , then the Rtype of f is . We prove that there is a constant P such that for functions f of positive finite Rtype. The constant P cannot be replaced by a smaller number in either inequality; P is called the power series constant.
