Both simple examples (such as creating a function which is the sum of two functions given as parameters, or creating the composition of two functions) and more complex examples such as generating a function representing the a finite number of terms of a Fourier series given the coefficients, and generating a function which is an approximation to an indefinite integral of a given function are shown.
