The server generates a function *f* (x) of one real variable x, containing
parameters a_{1},a_{2},..., which is defined by different
formulas on two segments of an interval. Your aim is to find values
for these parameters a_{i} such that *f* (x) is continuous and
differentiable to a required order.

One can solve the problem either by a Taylor expansion, or by successive derivations. In the difficult cases, the resolution of a system of linear equations is also necessary.

Choose the level of difficulty suitable for you: 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . 5 . 6 . 7 . 8 .

There is also a detailed menu for the parameters of this exercise.
