DiscreteRatio

DiscreteRatio[f,i]
gives the discrete ratio .

DiscreteRatio[f,{i,n}]
gives the multiple discrete ratio.

DiscreteRatio[f,{i,n,h}]
gives the multiple discrete ratio with step h.

DiscreteRatio[f,i,j,]
computes the partial difference ratio with respect to i, j, .

Details and OptionsDetails and Options

  • DiscreteRatio[f,i] can be input as . The character is entered EscdratioEsc or as \[DiscreteRatio]. The variable i is entered as a subscript.
  • All quantities that do not explicitly depend on the variables given are taken to have discrete ratio equal to one.
  • A multiple discrete ratio is defined recursively in terms of lower discrete ratios.
  • Discrete ratio is the inverse operator to indefinite product.
  • DiscreteRatio[f,,Assumptions->assum] uses the assumptions assum in the course of computing discrete ratios.
