Would the following notation be permitted? $\displaystyle f(x(t),t)=x^2(t) + x(t)\cdot t + \sin{t}$ And also, does that imply the following? $\displaystyle 1^\circ \; f(x(t-t_0),t)=x^2(t-t_0) + x(t-t_0)\cdot t + \sin{t} \\$ $\displaystyle 2^\circ \; f(x(t),t-t_0)=x^2(t-t_0) + x(t-t_0)\cdot (t-t_0) + \sin{(t-t_0)}$ The first one makes sense, but the second one seems a bit strange. Is there a better way to write this down? Thanks. April 11th, 2015, 10:10 AM #2 Global Moderator   Joined: Dec 2006 Posts: 20,835 Thanks: 2162 The first interpretation would be correct.
