Economics 204 Lecture 11–Monday, August 11, 2008 Sections 4.1-4.3, Unifed Treatment Defnition 1 Let f : I R ,where I R is an open interval. f is diferentiable at x I if lim h 0 f ( x + h ) f ( x ) h = a for some a R . This is equivalent to lim h 0 f ( x + h ) ( f ( x )+ ah ) h =0 ⇔∀ ε> 0 δ> 0 0 < | h | ± ± ± ± ± f ( x + h ) ( f ( x ah ) h ± ± ± ± ± ε> 0 0 0 < | h | | f ( x + h ) ( f ( x ah ) | | h | lim h 0 | f ( x + h ) ( f ( x ah ) | | h | Recall that the limit considers h near zero, but not h . Defnition 2 If X R n is open, f : X R m is diferentiable at x X if T x L ( R n , R m ) lim h 0 ,h R n | f ( x + h ) ( f ( x T x ( h )) | | h | (Recall |·| denotes the Euclidean distance.) f is diferentiable if it is diFerentiable at all x X . 1

h is a small, nonzero element of R n ; h 0 from any direction, along a spiral, etc. One linear operator T x works no matter how h approaches zero. f ( x )+ T x ( h ) is the best linear approximation to f ( x + h ) for small h Notation: y = O ( h )as h 0 means K,δ> 0 | h | ⇒| y |≤ K | h | read y is big-Oh of h y = o ( h h 0 means lim h 0 | y | | h | =0 read y is little-oh of h Therefore, f is diFerentiable at x ⇔∃ T x L ( R n , R m ) f ( x + h )= f ( x T x ( h o ( h h 0 Notation: df x is the linear transformation T x Df ( x ) is the matrix of x with respect to the standard basis; called the Jacobian or Jacobian matrix of f at x E f ( h f ( x + h ) ( f ( x x ( h )) (Error Term) f is diFerentiable at x E f ( h o ( h h 0 2
