Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-726) Ridders derivative
Date Mon, 30 Jan 2012 00:27:10 GMT


Gilles commented on MATH-726:

bq. The additional input like tolerances can be specified in the Ridders constructor, [...]

This sentence makes me think that we don't understand each other: the tolerance currently
_is_ passed in the constructor. It is the method that computes the derivative (which takes
additional parameters and returns a {{double}} in "RiddersFirstDerivative", while in "nabla"
I think that the equivalent method would return a "function" object).

Anyways, this should not be a blocking issue, while at the same time, we should probably not
jump too quickly to a conclusion concerning the API (here and there). So probably better to
leave this for later.
