Practice Midterm Examination Instructor J. Verstraete Time: 40 minutes No notes allowed All questions carry equal weight Question 1. State precisely the ² - δ definition of lim x a f ( x ) = L for a function f : R n R . Then prove using the ² - δ definition of limits that lim ( x,y ) (0 , 0) sin( x 2 + y 2 ) = 0 . 1

Unformatted text preview: ∇ ( f ◦ g )( a ) where a ∈ R m and f : R n → R p and g : R m → R n are functions. Then determine ∇ ( f ◦ g )(1 , 1) when f : R 2 → R 3 is defined by f ( x,y ) = ( x,y,xy ) and when g : R → R 2 is defined by g ( z ) = ( z, 1 /z ). 3 Question 4. Find all second order partial derivatives for the function f : R 3 → R defined by f ( x,y,z ) = (1 + x )(1 + y )(1 + z ) . 4...
