## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all.

If I have a function V(x1,x2,x3,x4) and I want to calculate it's standard deviation when x1,x2,x3,x4 are standard normal and their variances are small, then formula (8) on this page

http://www.devicelink.com/mem/archive/99/09/003.html" is an approximation to the standard deviation. Can anyone offer me a proof or tell me where I can read more about this formula?
