Differentiation is a mathematical tool/operation to calculate the gradient/slope of the graph at any perticular point. It also helps in finding the rate of change of any quantity with respect to other. Thanks.

differentiation is the rate of change of some quantity represented by delta (rate of change ) with respect to another)

From the point of view of Biology,
differentiation is the process by which a cell changes from one cell type to another. Usually this is because a less specialized type becomes a more specialized type, such as during cell growth.

In developmental biologycellular differentiation is the process by which a cell changes from one cell type to another.

In economics and marketingproduct differentiation (or simply differentiation) is the process of distinguishing a product or service from others, to make it more attractive to a particular target market.

Differentiation in semantics is defined by Löbner (2002) as a meaning shift reached by "adding concepts to the original concepts". His example is James Joyce is hard to understand, where understand is differentiated from "perceiving the meaning" to "interpret the text meaning".

Differentiation is a term in system theory (found in sociology.) From the viewpoint of this theory, the principal feature of modern society is the increased process of system differentiation as a way of dealing with the complexity of its environment

In geologyigneous differentiation is an umbrella term for the various processes by which magmas undergo bulk chemical change during the partial melting process, cooling, emplacement, or eruption.

In planetary scienceplanetary differentiation is the process of separating out different constituents of a planetary body as a consequence of their physical or chemical behaviour, where the body develops into compositionally distinct layers; the denser materials of a planet sink to the center, while less dense materials rise to the surface.

Mathematics :
The process of computing a derivative.
Biology The process by which cells or tissues undergo a change toward a morespecialized form or function, especially during embryonic development.

Differenciation is defined as the process by which meristamatic tissues become specific in their shape,size,function.

In mathematics, differential calculus is a subfield of calculus concerned with the study of the rates at which quantities change. It is one of the two traditional divisions of calculus, the other being integral calculus
