comment How do I evaluate several n-th derivatives of a function at one point?
BTW, there is another cool use for this method: to prove that the Dirac delta function is the limit of the sinc function, one can do this: InverseFourierTransform[ Limit[ FourierTransform[Sin[\[Omega] t]/(\[Pi] \[Omega]),\[Omega],\[Tau]], t->\[Infinity]], \[Tau],\[Omega]] (I actually don't know any better way of getting that result in Mathematica because of the conservative way DiracDelta is defined).

This does work, but only if the function decays fast enough to infinity. I don't think it will work for any kind of polynomials. E.g., try x^2: you get indeterminate errors (with n=1).

comment Drawing Cylindrical Segment with Graphics3D
But this doesn't hide the intersecting caps properly at the branch point, which is the main point of the question. You can see this more clearly by increasing the Tube radius in your example.

comment Dynamically labeling a family of curves
By "dynamically," do you really mean you want to place the labels programmatically based on the coordinates computed in Table? In Mathematica lingo, "dynamic" placement would usually be interpreted as "interactive" manipulation.

comment Error invoking Information on functions containing Legended
I agree it behaves like a bug. Would you mind adding the bug tag to the question (so I don't get in trouble for doing it myself)?

comment Error invoking Information on functions containing Legended
Unfortunately, your edited solution doesn't work with my original function. And your first solution (using Unprotect) still doesn't work with the function I defined in this answer which motivated my question. But certainly some kind of UpValues solution will be the way to go, even if it has to be more hand-tuned... so I upvoted this. I'll wait a little more before accepting it.

revised Error invoking Information on functions containing Legended
Added a line calling the function - without it, no error appears.

@Silvia Interesting observation. I have to add that to my question: the function should first be evaluated to see the error.

comment rasterListContourPlot With PlotLegends in Mathematica 9
I've changed the code at the URL linked above, so the problem mentioned in the question no longer occurs. If the changes work as I hope, it may be best to close this question as too localized. But I'd suggest waiting a little so I can get feedback.
