    Higher-Order Derivative

    Hello Everyone,

    I keep having some minor trouble with derivatives.

    I have the following Dx^2^0[x^19+x^12+x^5+10]
    or the twentieth derivative of x^1^9+x^1^2+x^5+10

    Is there a shortcut to this or do I just keep completing the derivatives until finding a solution?

    Hey vaironxxrd.

    You should check out the Gamma function and use that to define the operator D^n. Also take a look at the fractional calculus for derivatives for more information.
