Subject [math] derivatives & UnivarateRealFunction (diff'able)
Date Thu, 06 May 2004 21:19:21 GMT

About 4 weeks ago there was discussion w/ adding a derivative method to an 
extension of the o.a.c.m.analysis.UnivariateRealFunction interface. 

   I apologize for the time delay but I had previously contributed some 
code that made it to the expiremental branch in the project for 
FunctionOperators.    see:

  anyway at the time I just wanted to re-focus the group on this concept
as it relates to Derivates.  There is a DerivativeOperatorFactory which
creates a function D, such that D(f) = f' numerically.  The reason I did
this was to build a framework to add do numerical initial-value problems.  
A lot of these methods use as a base Taylor series approximations, and
hence there is a need for higher order derivative evaluations.

  long and short,  I thought that the DerivativeOperator approach would be 
a nice start to this without having to program a Function and it's 

   Any thoughts?
