Abstract: We present a new definition of differentiation for mappings of sets in topological vector spaces. Complete flexibility is allowed in choosing the topology with which the derivative is taken. We determine the largest space on which the derivative can act. Our definition includes all others hitherto given, and the basic theorems of calculus hold for it. Applications are considered here and elsewhere.
