Hi;

This is what your post looks like on my browser:

Now what on earth is that saying?

Are you defining Dy as

In numerical analysis you would see lots of relationships between delta x and dx. In fact, we often replace the differential with a finite difference. But the rest of that is still a hopeless bit of jargon to me. For one thing, you need to define δ.

Dy and Dx should probably be dy and dx.

It might help if you were to say where this came from.

Do you have the title and the author? Of course, you have not copied it correctly. No book, no matter how bad would ever do such a bad job at notation.
