Abstract

As the functions of a single variable x ordinarily have for derivatives other functions of this variable, it is clear that from a given function, \( y =f(x), \, \) we can deduce in general a multitude of new functions, each of which will be the derivative of the previous one. These new functions are what we name the derivatives of various orders of y or \(f(x), \, \) and we indicate them with the help of the notations.
