## Question:Uses of chain rule to compute the derivaitve of higher order

Maple 2015

Dear Users!

Hope everyone is fine here. Let me explain my problem first for this consider
diff(Y(xi), xi) = mu*(1-Y(xi)^2)
Then the derivative of a function U=u(Y(xi)) using chain rule (and expression menstiones as red) is given as,
diff(U, xi) = (diff(diff(Y, xi), Y))*U and (diff(diff(Y, xi), Y))*U = mu*(1-Y(xi)^2)*(diff(U, Y))
Similarly the second-order derivaitve of U=u(Y(xi)) using chain rule (and expression menstiones as red) is given as,
((&DifferentialD;)^(2))/(&DifferentialD; xi^(2))U=(&DifferentialD;)/(&DifferentialD; xi)(mu (1-Y^(2)(xi))*(&DifferentialD;)/(&DifferentialD; Y)U)=((&DifferentialD;)/(&DifferentialD; Y)*(&DifferentialD;)/(&DifferentialD; xi)Y)(mu (1-Y^(2)(xi))*(&DifferentialD;)/(&DifferentialD; Y)U)=(&DifferentialD;)/(&DifferentialD; Y)(mu^(2) (1-Y^(2)(xi))^(2)*(&DifferentialD;)/(&DifferentialD; Y)U)=-2 Y(xi) mu^(2) (1-Y^(2)(xi))*(&DifferentialD;)/(&DifferentialD; Y)U+ mu^(2) (1-Y^(2)(xi))^(2)*((&DifferentialD;)^(2))/(&DifferentialD; Y^(2))U;
In the similar way I want to compute the higher-order (like 5th order) derivaitve of U w.r.t. xi using the chain rule  (and expression menstiones as red) explained in above. Kindly help me soolve my problem

I am waiting for positive response.
