1. Suppose that f,g : R 2 R 2 are given by f ±• x y ‚¶ = x 2 y y 2 - x 2 = u v g ±• u v ‚¶ = sin u cos u = s t (a) Evaluate J f, -→ a (where -→ a = x y ) and J g,f ( -→ a ) , in terms of x and y . Solution: The Jacobian matrices are just made up of the partial derivatives of the corresponding functions. J f, -→ a = ± 2 xy x 2 - 2 x 2 y J g,f ( -→ a ) = ± cos u 0 - sin u 0 = ± cos x 2 y 0 - sin x 2 y 0 (b) Without computing the composition function g f , evaluate J g f, -→ a , in terms of x and y . Solution: The Jacobian of the composition is, by the Chain Rule, just the product of the individual Jacobian matrices: J g f, -→ a = J g,f ( -→ a ) J f, -→ a = ± cos x 2 y 0 - sin x 2 y 0 ¶± 2 xy x 2 - 2 x 2 y = ± 2 xy cos x 2 y x 2 cos x 2 y - 2 xy sin x 2 y - x 2 sin x 2 y 2

(c) Using the result from part (b), determine ∂s ∂y without explicitly computing s as a function of x and y . Explain your reasoning. Solution: J g f, -→ a = ∂s ∂x ∂s ∂y ∂t ∂x ∂t ∂y So, ∂s ∂y is the top right component of the matrix J g f, -→ a computed in part (b). So ∂s ∂y = x 2 cos x 2 y 3

2. (a) Write out the single variable limit that defines the directional derivative D -→ v f ( -→ a ). Solution: D -→ v f ( -→ a ) = lim h 0 f ( -→ a + h -→ v ) - f ( -→ a ) h (b) Let f : R 2 R be given by f ±• x y ‚¶ = x 2 - 3 xy 2 Compute the directional derivative of f at the point 2 1 in the direction 3 2 directly from the definition above. Solution: D -→ v f ( -→ a ) = lim h 0 f ( -→ a + h -→ v ) - f ( -→ a ) h = lim h 0 f ±• 2 + 3 h 1 + 2 h ‚¶ - f ±• 2 1 ‚¶ h = lim h 0 ((2 + 3 h ) 2 - 3(2 + 3 h )(1 + 2 h ) 2 ) - (2 2 - 3(2)(1) 2 ) h = lim h 0 - 36 h 3 - 51 h 2 - 21 h h = lim h 0 ( - 36 h 2 - 51 h - 21) = - 21 4
