Generalized Leibniz rule for higher derivative of multiple factors [closed]

Is there a "nice" general formula that expresses the following (formal) derivative $$\frac{d^n}{dx^n} \prod_{i=1}^N a_i(x)$$ "in terms of" the higher derivatives $a_{\nu}^{(k)}$ of each $a_{\nu}$?

The Jones-Sato-Wada-Wiens polynomial for prime numbers and differential calculus?

After works of Davis, Matijasevic, Putman and Robinson between 1960 and 1970, we know that every recursively enumerable set of numbers can be represented by a polynomial. In particular, it's the case ...

Differential Calculus and the De Rham Homotopy Operator

Suppose $M$ is a smooth manifold, $\Omega^k(M)$ the vector space (or $C^\infty(M)$-module in case this is better suited) of $k$-differentialforms on $M$ and $$I: \Omega^k(M\times \mathbb{R}) \to ...

Finding the Universal Ideal of a (Covariant) Differential Calculus

Let $(\Omega,d)$ be a differential calculus over an algebra $A$. It is easy to show that $\Omega$ is always equal to a quotient of $\Omega_u(A)$, the universal calculus over $A$, by some ideal $N$ of ...
