bird brain John Gabriel, stubborn (=super-idiot) as usual
and an inhibited spammer. There are never counter example
you moron, since we have:

a^n - b^n
--------- = d a^n/da for lim a->b and n<>1
a - b

(1/a)^n - (1/b)^n
----------------- = d (1/a)^n/da for lim a->b
a - b

The problem is that you need the following things which you deny:
- real numbers
- limit
- infinite series

You use an infinite series in your recent example
of e^(-1/x^2). Doesn't ring that a bell in your
little bird brain.

You cannot hide that YOU use infinite series,
by critizing other (like Newton) for
having finite series.
