Computing $\lim_{n\to\infty}e^{-n}\sum_{k=0}^n \frac{n^k}{k!}$ with central limit theorem

Exercise: Compute the following limit by using the central limit theorem: $$\lim_{n\to\infty}e^{-n}\sum_{k=0}^n \frac{n^k}{k!}$$ Solution (from textbook): Let $X_1,X_2,\ldots$ i.i.d. with ...

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 ...

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 ...

Summation of exponential series [duplicate]

Evaluate the limit: $$\lim_{n \to \infty}e^{-n}\sum_{k = 0}^n \frac{n^k}{k!}$$ It is not as easy as it seems and the answer is definitely not 1. Please help in solving it.

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 ...

Asymptotics of $\sum_{i=0}^{n} \frac{i n^i}{i!}$.

How can you calculate the asymptotics of $\sum_{i=0}^{n} \frac{i n^i}{i!}$ ? This sum looks similar to the power series for $e^n$. I have also seen similar problems solved using Poisson distributions ...

Finding $\lim_{n\to\infty} e^{-n}\sum_{k=0}^n \frac{n^k}{k!}$ if it exists [duplicate]

Does there exist the following limitation? If the answer is yes, could you show me how to find that? $$\lim_{n\to\infty} e^{-n}\sum_{k=0}^n \frac{n^k}{k!}$$ In the following, I'm going to write what ...

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

How can be evaluated this limit: $$\lim_{n\to\infty} e^{-n}\sum_{k=1}^n \frac{n^k}{k!} .$$ Thank you.
How does one calculate $$\lim_{n\to\infty}e^{-n}\sum_{k=0}^{n-1}\frac{n^k}{k!}?$$ Numerically it is somewhat close to $\frac12$. But to prove that I am going around a circle! Thanks for any help.
