Vlad,
f = #1^2 + #2 &;
c = #^2 &;
cf = Composition[c, f];(a^2 + b)^2
cf[a, b]
(a^2 + b)^2
Since f and cf are functions with two arguments, you need to use two
arguments in the Derivative statement.
Derivative[1, 0][f][a, b]
2 a
Derivative[0, 1][f][a, b]
1
Derivative[1, 0][cf][a, b]
4*a*(a^2 + b)

I have two related question. Let me introduce a pure function
f = #1^2 + #2 &
Now. I want to make an operation over the function, for example to
find its square and to call the result (the expected function f = (#1^2
+ #2)^2 & ) c:
c=f^2
However, I do not obtain this, as
c[a,b]
does not evaluate to (a+b)^2. Can anybody advise me how to obtain
such a function without long substitutions. I would like to obtain
something which is made for derivatives :
In[11]:=
Derivative[1][f]
Out[11]=
2 #1&
In[12]:=
Derivative[2][f]
Out[12]=
2&
Regards
Vlad
