A simple Method to approximate the Gradient.

No doubt, the gradient is a mathematical construct with many applications to real-world problems. Among others, it is the core tool for some optimization techniques like the ‘steepest descent’. But also, it can be used to detect edges in images, or to describe the dynamics of a heat flow.

In this short article I want to quickly show you a way to efficiently approximate the gradient for…
