The question asks for the Taylor expansion of a functional. Thus, given a real functional $f(g(x))$, what is the Taylor expansion about a function $h(x)$. What if the function is multi-variate, e.g., $f(x_1,x_2,g(x_1,x_2))$?
I've searched the web for an answer to this, and haven't come up with anything definite. If someone could help, I'd be grateful.
