Do you have the Symbolic Toolbox and an expression for your function?
syms t
x = cos(2*t);
y = diff(x,2)
subs(y,0) %evaluate the 2nd derivative at t=0

Hello, Thank you for your answer. Yes, I have the symbolic toolbox.
I would like make sum of diff(x) for exemple for order n going from 0 to 5. I tried:
{symsum(diff(x,n), n, 0, 5)}
it dipalys an error. Thank you in adavance. Good day, Aam
