Sorry, there is no differentiation built-in function in the C++ Standard Library.

You could try one of these libraries.

But this one has more recommendations:

This site grants you permission to download this book:
     http://astronu.jinr.ru/wiki/upload/d/d6/NumericalRecipesinC.pdf

You can copy the c code from it, and with the lengthy explanations, you can customize it for your needs.

(Note: The previous links I provided are for languages other than C/C++.)

What is your exact question? Do you want *formal* or *numerical* derivatives?

I'm farily sure he wants symbolic calculations (based on other questions he's asked).
Vimal, do you need a C++ library or do you just want a calculator?
This one works well
http://www.solvemymath.com/online_math_calculator/calculus/derivative_calculator/index.php
Also, if you want high tech, you could use MATLAB, Maple, or Wolfram Alpha

Wolfram Alpha is basically awesome. It's like Google for math (and more). Go to it
http://www.wolframalpha.com/
 and type something like
differentiate x^2 + 3x
It will give you the answer and you can click 'show steps' to get the details. It also shows the graph. It does integration too.

GiNaC may be the best free one out there
http://www.ginac.de/

It (and any other one) will take some time to get working, what do you need it for? You can write programs in MATLAB and the math is already built in. But if you need it to be in C++ then you should go with GiNaC. You'll have to connect to it as an unmanaged project of course, since it's in standard C++, not VC
