This is version 3 of diffcoeff.sty, and associated files,
and requires the LaTeX3 bundles l3kernel and l3packages. 

Version 3 adds a command for writing differentials like dx 
(in integralsf for instance) in the same form (math-italic 
or upright) as for derivatives. Some simple spacing commands 
are also added.

dif­f­co­eff – Write dif­fer­en­tial co­ef­fi­cients eas­ily and con­sis­tently

dif­f­co­eff.sty al­lows the easy and con­sis­tent writ­ing of or­di­nary, par­tial and other deriva­tives of ar­bi­trary (al­ge­braic or nu­meric) or­der. For mixed par­tial deriva­tives, the to­tal or­der of dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion is cal­cu­lated by the pack­age. Op­tional ar­gu­ments al­low spec­i­fi­ca­tion of points of eval­u­a­tion (or­di­nary deriva­tives), or vari­ables held con­stant (par­tial deriva­tives), and the place­ment of the dif­fer­en­tiand (nu­mer­a­tor or ap­pended).

The pack­age is built on xtem­plate, al­low­ing sys­tem­atic fine-tun­ing of the dis­play and gen­er­a­tion and use of vari­ant forms (like deriva­tives built from D, \Delta or \delta). A com­mand for dif­fer­en­tials en­sures the dx used in e.g. in­te­grals is con­sis­tent with the form used in deriva­tives.

The pack­age re­quires the 3 bun­dles l3k­er­nel and l3­pack­ages.
