Hi,

you must try to formulate your problem as simply a s possible. If your

consider f[x+y] then you should introduce a new variable z=x+y and

formulate your problem in terms of the one variable function f[z].

If you would give a simple example of your problem, you may get more

hope this helps, Daniel
