Differentials can be used to approximate a nonlinear function as a linear function.

They can be used as a "factory" to quickly find partial derivatives.

They can be used to test if a function is smooth.

### What is the definition differential and non-differential benefit?

Generally speaking you use those terms when you compare two conditions. Differential benefit finds the condition offers some benefits which another condition is not obtained. A non-differential benefit both conditions have no difference in benefits gained. If the word is used in a singular sense, then differential benefit suggests there are presented benefits. Non-differential benefits would suggest there are no additional benefits beyond that of baseline.
