# nth Derivative of Polynomial (Rational Polynomial) (G Dataflow)

Calculates the nth order derivative of a rational polynomial.

## numerator

Numerator coefficients, in ascending order of power, of the rational polynomial.

This input accepts the following data types:

• 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers
• 1D array of complex double-precision, floating-point numbers

## denominator

Denominator coefficients, in ascending order of power, of the rational polynomial.

This input accepts the following data types:

• 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers
• 1D array of complex double-precision, floating-point numbers

## order

Derivative order to calculate.

If order is less than zero, the node sets nth derivative to an empty array and returns an error.

Default: 0

## error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

## numerator of nth derivative

Numerator coefficients, in ascending order of power, for the nth derivative of the rational polynomial.

This output can return the following data types:

• 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers
• 1D array of complex double-precision, floating-point numbers

## denominator of nth derivative

Denominator coefficients, in ascending order of power, for the nth derivative of the rational polynomial.

This output can return the following data types:

• 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers
• 1D array of complex double-precision, floating-point numbers

## error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
