The following theorem for the discrete difference operator corresponds to a similar theorem from the continuous calculus, called the Taylor's formula.
Theorem: Taylor's Formula Using the Difference Operator
Let $f:D\to\mathbb C$ be a factorial polynomial with a suitable domain $D\subseteq\mathbb C$. Using the falling factorial powers and the nth difference operator, the value at $f(x)$ can be written as
$$f(x)=f(0)+\sum_{k=1}^n \frac{\Delta^k f(0)}{k !} x^{\underline{k}}.$$
