### How to force Series[] to compute expansions by considering non commutative multiplication?

I wish to compute the Taylor series expansion of the following iteration method $x_{k+1}=x_k-f'(x_k)^{-1}f(x_k)$ up to four terms of error ($e_k=x_k-\alpha$). When this is a scalar iteration, I very ...

### Why does Mathematica fail to series expand this simple expression?

I wanted to expand the function $(x+2)^{x+2}$ around $x = -1$, that is, using Series[(x + 2)^(x + 2), {x, -1, 2}] and Mathematica returns the same expression. ...

### Solve of cubic and quartic equations too slow

In my problem I have a third order algebraic equation for the variable sigma, all other letters are parameters. Here is it's right-hand side, left hand side is ...
I need to convert derivatives of g[x,v] wrt v into derivatives wrt x using this relation: $$\frac{dg[x,v]}{dv}=\frac{1}{2}\frac{d^{2}g}{dx^{2}}+\frac{1}{2}\left(\frac{dg}{dx}\right)^{2}$$ This code ...
