## Overview:

This is a Fortran program that estimates the derivative
of a function based on its known value at discrete points.
The technique that helps utilizes this program is called the central difference. This method required the
first and second derivatives of a known function in order to capture
the value at uniformly distributed points. An error assessment was also implemented to determine how the
magnitude error in the first derivative at one arbitrary point varies
as the initial values of the dependent variable changes. A technical paper written in L^{a}T_{e}X describes the purpose of this Fortran project
as well as its results.

## Programming Languages Used:

- Fortran
- MATLAB 2018

Fortran was used as the main program that complies the data into a single text document. That same text document was read into MATLAB in order to develop graphical plots.
