Hi,
Mathematica calculates a series with more than one variable
sequentially, leading to the order problem you mentioned. Now, what can
we do?
Here is simple solution: Formally, you know what you want, namely:
f1[x0, x0] + (-x0 + x2)*Derivative[0, 1][f1][x0, x0] + (-x0 +
x1)*Derivative[1, 0][f1][x0, x0]. Now, write this by hand with f1
unspecified and replace f1 by your function myFun[_,_]:
f1[x0, x0] + (-x0 + x2)*Derivative[0, 1][f1][x0, x0] + (-x0 +
x1)*Derivative[1, 0][f1][x0, x0] /. f1:>myFun
However, if you nevertheless want an automatism, although I would no
recommend this, we could try to formally couple both variable during the
expansion. E.g. we could introduce an unspecified proportionality
constant. x2= a x1, expand, replace all terms of the form a x1 by x2 and
set a=1:
Expand[Normal[Series[f1[x1,a x1],{x1,x0,1}]]]/. a x1 ->x2 /. a->1
The second proble you metioned is harder to deal with. I think it needs
hand work. E.g. replacement of c1^n_ -> 0
