Tool to compute derivatives. The differentiation is a fundamental tool when analyzing a function, it allows to measure the sensitivity to change of a function.

Mathematicians have defined derivatives using the formula $$ \frac{d}{dx}f = f'(x) = \lim_{h\to 0}\frac{f(x+h)-f(x)}{h} $$ The derivative calculation is the inverse operation of primitive calculation. dCode knows all derivatives, just indicate the function and the deriving variable.

Example: $$ f(x) = x^2+\sin(x) \Rightarrow f'(x) = 2 x+\cos(x) $$

The more useful derivatives are:

constant | $$ k, in, \mathbb{R} $$ | $$ 0 $$ |

variable | $$ x $$ | $$ 1 $$ |

power n | $$ x^n $$ | $$ n x^{n-1} $$ |

cotangent | $$ \cot x $$ | $$ - \frac{1}{\sin^2 x} = -1-\cot^2 x $$ |

arcsinus | $$ \arcsin x $$ | $$ \frac{1}{\sqrt{1-x^2}} $$ |

arccosinus | $$ \arccos x $$ | $$ -\frac{1}{\sqrt{1-x^2}} $$ |

cosinus hyperbolic | $$ \cosh x $$ | $$ \sinh x $$ |

tangent hyperbolic | $$ \tanh x $$ | $$ \frac{1}{\cosh^2 x} = 1 - \tanh^2 x $$ |

cotangent | $$ \coth $$ | $$ \frac{-1}{\sinh^2 x} = 1 - \coth^2 x $$ |

arcsinus hyperbolic | $$ \arcsinh x $$ | $$ \frac{1}{\sqrt{1+x^2}} $$ |

arccosinus hyperbolic | $$ \arccosh x $$ | $$ \frac{1}{\sqrt{x^2-1}} $$ |

arctangent hyperbolic | $$ \arctanh x $$ | $$ \frac{1}{1-x^2} $$ |

It is equivalent to compute the derivative twice, for dCode, indicate twice the same variable.
