Abstract: The differential-difference problem

$\displaystyle \frac{d}{{ds}}\;\{ {sJ(s)} \} + J(s + 1) = 0\;(\operatorname{Re} (s) > 0);\quad sJ(s) \to 1\;{\text{as}}\;s \to 0,$

which arises in the theory of numbers, is studied and an algorithm developed for the simultaneous numerical approximation of the derivatives $ {J^{(n)}}(s)$. An error bound is established for the process described and its numerical performance and stability are discussed.
