Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The equivalence class of f would just be the set of functions such that every function in the set is equal to f plus a constant term (The derivative of a constant term is 0).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so should i define f. that means should i specify f in order to find the classes?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1f is just a real differentiable function. The most important thing is to define what a constant is. In this case, you should define the constant by saying it's a continuous differentiable function such that it's first derivative is 0.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so can i say x^2/R= X^2+C, C= is a constant

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or ax^2+bx+C , a,b,c are constant.. can i define the classes like that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Partially. The only problem with defining classes like that, is you would have an infinite number of definitions, and you wouldn't include function like sin(x) and \(e^x\). Rather, I might recommend a definition similar to the following...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let \(f, g, h, a\) be continuous differentiable functions on the set of real numbers, and define an equivalence relation R such that \(f\text{R} g \;\Leftrightarrow \; f'=g'\). Then \(h\) is in the equivalence class of \(f\) iff \(h=f+a\) where \(a\;'=0\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0mmm.. sounds good.. i think ill never come up with that.. :( why?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It just takes practice. When I first started doing this, it took me a while to get used to it. Just make sure to proofread your definitions.
