Successive Differentiation

Lecture 3: Objective: In this section you will learn the following Definition of successive derivatives. The notion of successive differentiation. The Leibniz’s formula. The related problems. Definition of successive derivatives We have seen that the derivative of a function of is in general also a function of . This new function may also be differentiable, in which case the derivative of the first derivative is called the second derivative of the original function. Similarly, the derivative of the second derivative is called the third derivative; and so on to the -th derivative. Thus, if

and so on. Notation The symbols for the successive derivatives are usually abbreviated as follows:

If y = f(x), the successive derivatives are also denoted by

or or,

The

-th derivative

For certain functions a general expression involving may be found for the -th derivative. The usual plan is to find a number of the first successive derivatives, as many as may be necessary to discover their law of formation, and then by induction write down the -th derivative. Example 1. Given y = e ax , find dn y . dx n

Example 2. Given y = log x , find

Leibnitz's Formula for the

-th derivative of a product :

This formula expresses the -th derivative of the product of two variables in terms of the variables themselves and their successive derivatives. If u and v are functions of , each possessing derivatives upto nth order, then the nth derivative of their product is given by (uv) n = un v + n c1un −1v1 + n c2 un −2 v2 + ...... + n cr un −r vr + .... + uvn , Where the suffixes of u and v denote the order of differentiations of u and v with respect to x. Example 1. Given y = e x log x , find d3y by Leibnitz's Formula. dx 3

Solution. Let ,

, and .

v = log x

If y = ( x 2 − 1) n , then show that ( x 2 − 1) yn + 2 + 2 xyn +1 − n(n + 1) yn = 0 Hence deduce that d 2 dpn (1 − x ) + n(n + 1) pn = 0 dx dx dn 2 wherepn = n ( x − 1) n dx 2.If y = tan −1 x then show that (1 + x 2 ) yn +1 + 2nxyn + n(n − 1) yn −1 = 0 .Hence find ( yn )o 3. If y = e show that (1 − x 2 ) yn + 2 − (2n + 1) xyn+1 − (n2 + m2 ) yn = 0 . Also find ( yn )o .
