Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my book defines:: ___ The error function:\[\operatorname {erf}(x)=\frac{2}{\sqrt \pi}\int\limits_0^xe^{u^2}\mathrm du\]___ The complementary error function:\[\operatorname{erfc}(x)=1\operatorname {erf}(x)\] ___\[\operatorname {erc}(x)=e^{x^2}\operatorname{erfc(x)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i guess it is the normalised complementary error function

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\Large {y=\operatorname{erc}(x)=e^{x^2}\left[1\frac{2}{\sqrt \pi}\int_0^xe^{u^2}\;\mathrm du\right]\\\frac{dy}{dx}=2xe^{x^2}\left[1\frac{2}{\sqrt \pi}\int_0^xe^{u^2}\;\mathrm du\right]+e^{x^2}\left[\frac{2}{\sqrt \pi}e^{x^2}\right]\\=2xy\frac{2}{\sqrt \pi}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you used the derivative "under the integral sign", and i appreciate looking at a different solution. i see the function \(\operatorname{efc}(x)\) as a product, so i sued the product rule for derivative. in the process, i also saw the fundamental theorem of calculus\[\frac{\mathrm d}{\mathrm dx} \int_a^x f(u)\;\mathrm du=f(x)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the only difference i can see your method is that you used erf where i used erfc

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can't say I understand the difference between derivative "under the integral sign" & the fundamental theorem of calculus
