Differentiation in math terms is the mathematical procedure of taking the derivative of a function. A derivative of a function is a function that gives the slopes of the tangent lines to each point of the curve representative of the function on a graph. In a physics perspective, the derivative of a function for distance is the velocity, and the second derivative of distance or the first derivative of velocity is the acceleration. The word differentiation refers to the action of differentiating or making a distinction between two things.

Chain rule is a differentiation technique which can be used in either implicit or explicit differentiation, depending upon the problem. On the other hand, implicit differentiation is a differentiation technique, which is used when all x's and y's are on the same side. Example: x squared + y squared = 4xy, in this case, you use implicit differentiation to actually differentiate the equation, and you use the chain rule to differentiate 4xy.

There is no single formula for differentiation and anti-differentiation.The deriviative of a function y = f(x) is the limit of delta y over delta x as delta x approaches zero.OR:If f(x)=axn,f'(x)=(an)xn-1The deriviative of 2x3 would be 6x2.The anti-deriviative of a function is the reverse operation, i.e. the function is the deriviative of the anti-deriviative.Anti differentiation introduction:Anti differentiation is also called as integration process. It gives the reverse value of the differentiation equation. Anti differentiation is also called as anti derivative of the function. In this anti differentiation, f(x) is anti derivative of the function F(x). Anti differentiation is used for finding the area of the region under the certain curve. Anti differentiation symbol is denoted as โซ.General formula for anti differentiation:โซ xn dx = [xn + 1 / (n + 1)]+ cโซ k dx = k โซ dxโซ udv = uv - โซ v duโซ (w + y) dx = โซ w dx + โซ y dxanti-differentiation
