Please help me write the formula

I need to formulate the follow relationship in proper math symbols:

Differential in A (last day's value minus today's) has a tendency to reach the Differential in B (today's)

I though this could be expressed with

AΔ -> BΔ

But I guess there are more elegant and mathematically correct ways to do this in Maple or Mathcad?

Thank you!

Math Focus: Yet to find out.
Not quite sure what you are asking. Can you give more information about A and B?

Let 'last days value' = LV, and 'today's value' = TV.

Then A = LV - TV, and B = TV.

As you have said, you could say $\Delta A = LV - TV$.

If you want to show that '$\Delta A$ approaches B', then you need to determine what causes this to happen.

Or maybe,

A = $V_{i - 1} - V_i, \ i = 1, 2, ...$ where $i$ denotes the current day, and V is the value.

A definition of "tendency to reach" is needed, else any use of symbols could well be misleading.
