When the B process is applied to y = TF(m/M), then we need F'(x) to be nonzero. Swinnerton-Dyer's method requires F" (x) not to vanish, and bounds for rounding error sums using exponential sum methods also require certain derivatives or determinants of derivatives to be non-zero. The derivatives of the function defining the curve in the final comparison problem will be rational functions in the derivatives F(T)( ) of the function F(x) defining the curve in the original problem, evaluated at one or more nearby points .

The use of n-tuples is based on Filaseta's use of second differences (1988), but it can also be regarded as an iteration of one of Swinnerton-Dyer's innovations (1974). , mR be a sequence of positive integers with

If L(nM) > 1, then the curve nMC enters each new square by cutting a lattice line. Since nMC is a convex curve, it meets lattice lines in two distinct points, or possibly in a closed interval. In the case of a closed interval, we take the endpoints of the interval to be the two points in which the lattice line is cut by the curve; they may coincide. Then L(nM), the number of squares cut, is at most the number of times that the curve nMC cuts a lattice line in this sense, and L(nM) < 4(nMA/2 + 1) = 2nMA + 4.
