`f1 = function('f1',latex_name = 'f_1')(x)`
and set their derivative or at least be able to substitute their derivative. As an example assume I defined f1,f2,f3,f4 then I would set dx f1 = f2+f3 and what I would expect is
f1.derivative(x)
to output
f2(x)+ f3(x)ywidmeThu, 25 Feb 2016 07:49:39 -0600http://ask.sagemath.org/question/32669/
