Abstract: In a previous paper (Lyness and Moler $ [1]$), several closely related formulas of use for obtaining a derivative of an analytic function numerically are derived.

Each of these formulas consists of a convergent series, each term being a sum of function evaluations in the complex plane.

In this paper we introduce a simple generalization of the previous methods; we investigate the "truncation error" associated with truncating the infinite series. Finally we recommend a particular differentiation rule, not given in the previous paper.
