this should be definition of higher derivations

R be ring, N be natural number with {0}

Let D= {

},n

N be family of additive mappings

:R

R.

D is said to be higher derivation on R if:

1.

2.

,

a,b

R, and n

N

i'm interest in this topics, cause it can be related in calculus.

if n=1, then its just derivation

.

its easy, cause additive mapping represent sum rule, and that condition represent product rule in calculus. (leibniz rule if i'm not mistaken).

in calculus: the map of d is fixed, d(f(x))

f'(x)

so, the example is common polynomials

in algebra: the common example is the map d(x)=ax-xa, a is constan,

or matrices with little tricks can be derivation

so the basic is the same, but in algebra we see it at different angle.

when i learn higher derivations, i have some problems.

in calculus,

and so on in third,fourth,.... there is constan which follow pascal's triangle, but on definition of higher derivation it ignored.

so i can't find example in calculus like derivations

And i still can't find example in algebra which is simple (usually, the example is in general shape, so must be prove with induction, its still too abstract like not as example)

is there any example of higher derivation, so it can be fun to learn like derivation?

if my assumption, explanation, definition is wrong, please tell me before i lost any further.

thanks(Happy)
