Subject: Re: Third Derivative


But what really does concavity mean.  It seems to only have
significance if it is positive negative or 0.  The magnitude of
concavity seems meaningless...leading to the question what is the real
use of the third and higher derivatives other than that they are
derivatives of derivatives?
