# book: Derivations of Applied Mathematics

Understandably, program sources rarely derive the mathematical formulas

they use. Not wishing to take the formulas on faith, a user might

nevertheless reasonably wish to see such formulas somewhere derived.

.

Derivations of Applied Mathematics is a book which documents and

derives many of the mathematical formulas and methods implemented in

free software or used in science and engineering generally. It

documents and derives the Taylor series (used to calculate

trigonometrics), the Newton-Raphson method (used to calculate square

roots), the Pythagorean theorem (used to calculate distances) and many

others.
