Proof of the formula for the nth derivative of a product


*shakes head* Bah, can't believe I missed that.

I bet the formula you gave is wrong. [:)] Try computing by hand the case where n = 2.


The right formula, and proof, looks almost exactly like the binomial theorem; have you seen a proof of that?
