Dear all!
next week I'm going to present my guessing package at MathInfo 06. It works
quite well meanwhile :-)
Hower, there is one thing I don't really want to program - in fact, I won't -
although it would be really really useful. Maybe somebody else can do it. I
offer a price, ok?
The challenge is as follows:
I need an operation evalADE that takes a functional equation of the form
f(x) = g(f(x), D(f(x),x), D(f(x),x,2),...),
where g is any "nice" expression, some initial values, and an integer n.
The result of the operation should be the n-th coefficient of the taylor
expansion of f, if it exists.
Even more important, suppose that the functional equation is of the form
p(f(x), D(f(x),x), D(f(x),x,2), ...)
where p is a polynomial. These f are called differentially algebraic.
The algorithm does not need to be especially fast, but it would be nice to be a
able to compute the first fifty to hundred coefficients in a reasonable time.
Note that Axiom provides an operation seriesSolve, which provides a partial
solution. However, it is very buggy and gives up even for certain algebraic
equations.
Price is negotiable.
Martin
