CAS.diff command results diff command again
Hi Friends,
I am working with diff command BUT using variable name that stores a function F(X) some results include diff command again Using diff in HOME direct goes fine: diff(SEC(X)1,X) returns SIN(X)/COS(X)^2 The problem is if the function is stored in a variable in this case fx fx:='SEC(X)1' diff(fx,X) returns diff(SEC(X),X) returns diff as part of result.... then HOW TO GET the final derivative using variable ? Pd. I use diff in a program to calculate derivative then show it to user and evaluate in some X points. Thanks for your answer. Best regards!! joseph

RE: CAS.diff command results diff command again
Have you tried:
EVAL(diff(fx,X)) road

I appreciate this and future suggestions. Best regards!! jose

RE: CAS.diff command results diff command again
The only way I can think of at the moment is to do it in CAS with small x's and then substitute in the big X's, try this from the home screen:
CAS("fx:=SEC(x)+x^2") CAS("subst(eval(diff(fx,x)),x='X')") You should get: (SIN(X)/COS(X)^2)+2*X road

That worked then when I typed in X and Enter I got 2 back. Tom L Tom L ...other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, what did you think of the play?

Have an excellent week. joseph

RE: CAS.diff command results diff command again
Here is a function that will differentiate equations written with HOME variables WITHOUT substituting in the value contained in the variable:
PHP Code: EXPORT HOMEDIFF(z,n) example 1: fx:='SEC(X)+X^2' HOMEDIFF(fx,'X') returns: (2*X*SIN(X)^22*XSIN(X))/(SIN(X)^21) example 2: HOMEDIFF('X^2+LN(SIN(X))','X') returns: (2*X*SIN(X)+COS(X))/SIN(X) There are a few caveats: 1. It doesn't always work on the handheld calculator. It only works on the emulator and apps. Presumably, if the handheld is ever updated, it should start working there; 2. It doesn't work if you have either a CAS or user variable named t25369a; 3. Simplification isn't very good; 4. You have to use a valid CAS equation: X^3.2 won't work, X^(32/10) will work. road edited to add caveat #4 and to correct a grammatical error

Hi Roadrunner,
Thanks for the detailed solution, simplification is not necesary for now... we hope more development in HP Prime CAS, Best regards!! joseph (06152017 07:00 PM)roadrunner Wrote: Here is a function that will differentiate equations written with HOME variables WITHOUT substituting in the value contained in the variable:

RE: CAS.diff command results diff command again
Well, this is what I have that works here for me:
The program is: EXPORT fx,fxPrime; EXPORT diffTest() BEGIN INPUT({{fx,[8]}},"Enter Expression"); fxPrime:=diff(fx,X); END; Not sure if Bernard added something to the CAS, but I'm guessing a slight tweak somewhere may be responsible. Everything seems to be working as expected? TW Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own.
