    Strictly speaking, the nn-th derivatives for the function ge 1/g 2g \mapsto e^{-1/g^2} don’t exist at g=0g = 0, because g1/g 2g \mapsto -1/g^2 and thus ge 1/g 2g \mapsto e^{-1/g^2} is only defined for g>0g \gt 0 or g<0g \lt 0. One could analytically continue ge 1/g 2g \mapsto e^{-1/g^2} and its nn-th derivatives to g=0g = 0 via a piecewise function

    g{e 1/g 2 g>0g<0 0 g=0g \mapsto \begin{cases} e^{-1/g^2} & g \gt 0 \vee g \lt 0 \\ 0 & g = 0 \end{cases}

    and similarly for its nn-th derivatives, but in that case, it shouldn’t be surprised that this function’s taylor series expansion at zero is only valid at zero. It’s the same reason why the taylor series expansion for the absolute value function as the identity function on the real numbers is only valid for the positive real numbers, and is inherently due to the piecewise nature of the function.

    added a tikz-graphics (here) meant to illustrate that the non-perturbative region of parameter space is large (really the complement of an infinitesimal subspace)

    I’ll probably fine-tune that graphics further tomorrow, and then maybe add it to other related entries (such as to perturbative QFT)
