Application Of Differential Calculus
In mathematics, differential calculus is a subfield of calculus concerned with the study of the
rates at which quantities change.
It is one of the two traditional divisions of calculus, the other
being integral calculus.
The primary objects of study in differential calculus are the derivative of a function, related
notions such as the differential, and their applications.
The derivative of a function at a chosen input value describes the rate of change of the
function near that input value.
The process of finding a derivative is called differentiation.
Geometrically, the derivative at a
point equals the slope of the tangent line to the graph of the function at that point.
For a real-valued function of a single real variable, the derivative of a function at a point
generally determines the best linear approximation to the function at that point.
Differential calculus and integral calculus are connected by the fundamental theorem of
calculus, w
