## Main Question or Discussion Point

I have a function, [itex]x(t)[/itex], where [itex]x[/itex] and [itex]t[/itex] are real scalars. I have been trying to derive an analytical expression for the n

Meanwhile, I have managed to derive a method for recursively obtaining the n

Is there any way I can use this information to my advantage?

^{th}derivative of [itex]x[/itex] with respect to [itex]t[/itex]:[tex]x^{(n)}(t) \triangleq \frac{d^n}{dt^n}x(t)= \ \ ?[/tex]However, getting a general expression is proving tricky.Meanwhile, I have managed to derive a method for recursively obtaining the n
