multiple differentialsone thing thats bothering me. Sometimes it seems the rules for differentiating are not always true. For instance: A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #2 20051202 12:23:39
Re: multiple differentialsI think that you are just a little bit confused on this one. The derivative of e^x is e^x, but that is because you are differentiating a variable exponent. There are a lot of derivatives associated with logarithmic and exponential functions. #3 20051202 12:51:42

eh? The greatest challenge to any thinker is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution. Bertrand Russell #5 20051203 03:34:31
Re: multiple differentialsOr we could say that we were finding d/de. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal.
