1 CHAPTER 4 Derivatives by the Chain Rule 1 4.1 The Chain Rule You remember that the derivative of f(x)g(x) is not (df/dx)(dg/dx). The derivative of sin x times x2 is not cos x times 2x. The product rule gave two terms, not one term. But there is another way of combining the sine function f and the squaring function g into a single function. The derivative of that new function does involve the cosine times 2x (but with a certain twist). We will first explain the new function, and then find the "chain rule" for its derivative. May I say here that the chain rule is important. It is easy to learn, and you will use it often. I see it as the third basic way to find derivatives of new functions from derivatives of old functions. (So far the old functions are xn, sin x, and cos x. Still ahead are ex and log x.) When f and g are added and multiplied, derivatives come from the sum rule and product rule. This section combines f and g in a third way. The new function is sin(x2)-the sine of x2. It is created out of the two original functions: if x = 3 then x2 = 9 and sin(x2) = sin 9. There is a "chain" of functions, combining sin x and x2 into the composite function sin(x2). You start with x, then find g(x), then Jindf (g(x)): The squaring function gives y = x2. This is g(x). The sine function produces z = sin y = sin(x2). This is f(g(x)). The "inside function" g(x) gives y. This is the input to the "outside function" f(y). That is called composition. It starts with x and ends with z. The composite function is sometimes written fog (the circle shows the difference from an ordinary product fg). More often you will see f(g(x)): Other examples are cos 2x and (2~)~, with g = 2x. On a calculator you input x, push the "g" button, then push the "f" button: From x compute y = g(x) From y compute z = f(y).
