### Is it a weaker condition for the symmetry of mixed derivatives?

Asked in MathStackExchange and I think it may be harder than usual problems.
Conditions:
$f:\mathbb{R^2}\mapsto\mathbb{R}$ has second-order derivatives on some neighborhood of the zero point.
$f_{...

### A geometric property about certain polynomials in two variables

Assume that $p(x,y)$ is a polynomial in $\mathbb{R}[x, y]$ in the form $$ p=p_{2n}+ p_{2n-1}+\ldots +p_1+p_0$$
where $p_i$ is a homogenous polynomial of degree $i$. Moreover we assume that the last ...

### Reference for numerical solutions for differential equations like $f'(x)=f(x+1)+f(x-1)$

One can solve a delay differential equation (like for example $f'(x)=f(x-1)$) if we have a function as a bounded condition (in my example we need to know $f$ on $[0,1)$) and then use a simple forward ...
