### How to compute $\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty}e^{-n}\left(1+n+\frac{n^2}{2!}\cdots+\frac{n^n}{n!}\right)$ [duplicate]

There is a probabilistic method to solve it. But I am not familiar with probability. I am trying to compute it by analytic method, such as using L Hospital's rule or Stolz formula, but they are not ...

### Limit using Poisson distribution [duplicate]

Show using the Poisson distribution that $$\lim_{n \to +\infty} e^{-n} \sum_{k=1}^{n}\frac{n^k}{k!} = \frac {1}{2}$$

### Central value of the partial exponential function [duplicate]

I need help calculating the central value of the partial exponential function : $$\lim_{n \to \infty} e^{-n} \sum^n_{k=0} \frac{n^k}{k!}$$ fd

### Exact value of an infinite series [duplicate]

The following exercise was given to me during a course of probability. I guess that this result can be used to check the Lyapunov condition of the Central Limit Theorem. Useful or not, I need to prove ...

### Proving $\lim e^{-n}(1+n+n^2/2!+\cdots +n^n/n!) = 1/2$ [duplicate]

In my probability class we saw an amazing proof using the CLT (central limit theorem), I'm wondering what's a more straightforward way to do this.

### $\lim_{n\to\infty} e^{-n}\sum_{k=1}^n \frac{n^k}{k!}$ [duplicate]

How can be evaluated this limit: $$\lim_{n\to\infty} e^{-n}\sum_{k=1}^n \frac{n^k}{k!} .$$ Thank you.

### Does n power of e grow much more faster than its Maclaurin polynomial? [duplicate]

I wonder how to calculate the following limit: $$\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty}\frac{1+n+\frac{{}n^{2}}{2!}+\cdots +\frac{n^{n}}{n!}}{e^{n}}$$ In the first sight, I think it should be zero, because ...
