I have made a basic app that can derivate a mathematical expression. The current input method looks like this:
JavaScript
G = new Ln(new Add(new X(), new Add(new Constant(2), new Ln(new X()))));
Is there a way to use the string input method which is looks like this:
ln(x+(2+ln(x)))
How could I do that?

I know how basic tokenzier works, I have already made one (github). But I do not know how to convert a tokenzied array into
JavaScript
G = new Ln(new Add(new X(), new Add(new Constant(2), new Ln(new X()))));
format??

I am newbie in the fields of programming.

1) If I wanted to answer SO questions, I'd answer questions at SO, not CP. Posting so multiple groups do the same work for you is a good way to get peoples backs up - and annoyed people are less likely to help you than happy ones.

2) If you have written a tokenizer, then you've done the donkey work already: now convert the tokens into a stack-based (RPN) form and evaluate them:
ln(x+(2+ln(x)))
Becomes
x 2 x ln + + ln
Now unwind the stack and it's easy to evaluate. Converting infix to RPN (shunting-yard algorithm) | andreinc[^]
