Numerical Calculus Package
The built-in functions D, Limit, Residue and Series perform computations using symbolic and analytic methods. The functions ND, NLimit, NResidue and NSeries, in this package, are the numerical versions of these functions.
Limits and Derivatives
NLimit numerical limit of a function
ND numerical derivative of a function at a point
Summations and Series
EulerSum numerical sum using Euler's transformation
NSeries numerical series expansion of a function
NResidue numerical residue of an expression near a specified point
