Paper Abstract

We develop an analytical estimate for the error that arises when approximating the generalized Planck's equation with a truncated series of N-terms. We present an analytical expression to evaluate the number of terms required to achieve specific accuracy. The results are applied to evaluation of the integral of the generalized Planck's equation over a wavelength interval.
