Abstract:

The chain rule is a standard topic in first-term calculus courses. It tells us how to express the first derivative of a composition, $f\circ g$, in terms of the first derivatives of $f$ and $g$. But what about the second derivative, or third derivative, or, $\dots$, the $n$th derivative of $f\circ g$? Is there a formula relating the $n$th derivative of $f\circ g$ to the derivatives of $f$ and $g$? What does it look like? This talk will explore some answers to these questions.
