T4=taylor(df,a,b,ya,M)
function T4=taylor(df,a,b,ya,M)

%Input   - df=[y' y'' y''' y'''']entered as a string 'df'
%          where y'=f(t,y)
%        - a and b are the left and right endpoints
%        - ya is the initial condition y(a)
%        - M is the number of steps
%Output  - T4=[T' Y'] where T is the vector of abscissas and
%          Y is the vector of ordinates
