VECTOR Derivative_Polynomial_Interval(int Degree,VECTOR &Coeff) INTEGER_VECTOR Derivative_Polynomial_Interval(int Degree,INTEGER_VECTOR &Coeff); VECTOR Nth_Derivative_Polynomial_Interval(int Degree,VECTOR &Coeff,int n)These procedures enable to get the coefficients of the first and n-th derivative of a polynomial defined by its REAL or INT coefficients.
Due to rounding errors there may be errors in the coefficients provided by the previous procedures. The procedure:
INTERVAL_VECTOR Derivative_Polynomial_Safe_Interval(int Degree,VECTOR &Coeff);will return an INTERVAL_VECTOR (i.e. a set of intervals) which are guaranteed to include the true value of the coefficients of the derivative. A faster procedure may be used if "safe" interval values of the coefficients have been pre-computed:
INTERVAL_VECTOR Derivative_Polynomial_Fast_Safe_Interval(int Degree,INTERVAL_VECTOR &Coeff);
If we deal with polynomial with interval coefficients the following procedures may be used:
