Divided differences are enormously useful in developing stable and accurate numerical formulas. For example, programs to compute f(x)  f(y) as might occur in integration, can be notoriously inaccurate. Such problems can be cured by approaching these computations through divided difference formulations. This paper provides a guide to divided difference theory and practice, with a special eye toward the needs of computer algebra systems that should be programmed to deal with these oftenmessy formulas.
