    The keyword derivative used to redirect to “differentiable map”. I found that less than useful for many purposes of linking to it, and so I have now split it off as a stand-alone entry. Presently this contains nothing than pointers to other entries. But it is already useful to see how many entries on variants of “derivative” we have, and to have a place to collect them all.

    All the ones I saw listed so far seem to be classical notions from calculus as extending into analysis and geometry. But there are other conceptual usages, e.g., the derivative of a species, derivatives in Goodwillie calculus. Would it be inappropriate to include them in the list?

    Yes! It is appropriate.

    No! It is not inappropriate.
