Differential Calculus

What is the standard notation for the derivative?

The following represents the definition of the derivative of f(x) (note: in order for the limit to exist, both Image and Image—must exist and be equal; thus, the function must be continuous):

For f (x)’s derivative at point x0:


For f(x)’s derivative at x = a:
