More precisely, volumes enclosed by nD spheres, or of nD balls.

Still, I'm wondering about the first term. Does it imply the volume enclosed by a point is 1? Should the first term be 0 r0 ?

I've been wondering this too! Negative dimension?

A one-dimensional ball of radius r is a line segment of length 2r and its zero-dimensional sphere consists of two points separated by a distance of 2r. Therefore, the series probably only starts at 1, i.e. the "volume" of a zero-dimentional ball.

Let's rather compare this way ...

0D: vol = 1, area = 0

1D: vol = 2r, area = 2

2D: vol = πr² , area = 2πr

3D: vol =  / πr3 , area =  4πr2

etc.

Thus, for volume:

1   2r   πr²   / πr3  ...

but for bounding area:

0   2   r   4πr2   ...
