## operatorAn operator is a mathematical object representing a specific action on a function or variable. The operator itself is meaningless unless a rule is given to explain how the operator acts on the function. For example, the derivative operator, written D =
d/dx, has meaning only when applied to the function f(x), that
is Df(x) = df(x)/dx = f(x). ## Related category• FUNCTIONS | |||||
