1. The process which it is the object of this Essay to establish, being nothing else than the leading theorem in the Calculus of Derivations, presented under a new aspect, may be regarded as a universal instrument of calculation, extending to the composition as well as analysis of functions of every kind. But it comes into most useful application in the numerical solution of equations. 2. Arbogast’s developement of ϕ ( α + βx + γx2 + δx3 + ∈x4 + .... ) (See Calc, des Der. § 33 ) supposes all… Expand
