differentiation of a real function of one real variable.
| A function object representing a function of the form |
y=f(x) which returns the value of the function whose derivative is to be
| The value of x at which the derivative is required.|
| the derivative of the specified function with respect to the argument value at |
deriv uses an automatic differentiation algorithm implemented in a Mathnium class
der . Consequently, not all functions may be differentiated by using this function. Typically, this function should be used only for those functions that are defined in terms of scalar arithmetic operations and elementary mathematical functions. For all other cases, the function
nderiv should be used.
