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

%Input    - df=[y' y'' y''' y''''] 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

%If df is an M-file function call T4=taylor(@df,a,b,ya,M).
%If df is an anonymous function call T4=taylor(df,a,b,ya,M).
