CHAPTER 13 Partial Derivatives This chapter is at the center of multidimensional calculus. Other chapters and other topics may be optional; this chapter and these topics are required. We are back to the basic idea of calculus-the derivative. There is a functionf, the variables move a little bit, and f moves. The question is how much f moves and how fast. Chapters . 1-4 answered this question for f(x), a function of one variable. Now we have f(x, y) or f(x, y, z)-with two or three or more variables that move independently. As x and y change, f changes. The fundamental problem of differential calculus is to connect Ax and Ay to Af. Calculus solves that problem in the limit. It connects dx and dy to df. In using this language I am building on the work already done. You know that dfldx is the limit of AflAx. Calculus computes the rate of change-which is the slope of the tangent line. The goal is to extend those ideas to fix, y) = x2 - y2 or = Jm or f(x, y, z) = 2x + 3y + 42. These functions have graphs, they have derivatives, and they must have tangents. The heart of this chapter is summarized in six lines. The subject is diflerential calculus-small changes in a short time. Still to come is integral calculus-adding up those small changes. We give the words and symbols for f(x, y), matched with the words and symbols for f(x). Please use this summary as a guide, to know where calculus is going. Curve y = f(x) vs. Surface z = df becomes two partial derivatives - af and - af d~ ax ay - becomes four second derivatives - -- - d2{ a2f ax2' axayY ayai ay2 Af % AX becomes the linear approximation % 9 AX + a f ~ ~ ax ay tangent line becomes the tangent plane z - z, = af(x - x,) + af(y - yo) ax ay dy - dy dx dz az'ax a~ dy ---- becomes the chain rule - = - - +-- dt d~ dt dt a~ dt a~ dt - df = 0 becomes two maximum-minimum equations - af = 0 and af = 0.
