# Category:Finite differences

Here is a list of articles in the Finite differences category of the Computing portal that unifies foundations of mathematics and computations using computers.

Finite differences are composed from differences in a sequence of values, or the values of a function sampled at discrete points. Finite differences are used both in interpolation and numerical analysis, and also play an important role in combinatorics and analytic number theory. The prototypical finite difference equation is the Newton series.
