Let c be a C-constant that does not occur in A. Then, by assumption, A[c/x] is derivable using , say, the derivation D. Since c does not occur in A and there are no open assumptions in D, c functions as an eigenparameter of D. Let a be a parameter that does not occur in D. Then D[a/c] is a derivation of A[a/x] (= (A[c/xJ)[a/c]).
