Unformatted text preview: MATH 251-3, Fall 2007 Simon Fraser University Assignment 6: Solutions Additional Question Due: 4:30pm, Monday 29 October 2007 1. Define the function of two variables u ( x, y ) by u = ln p x 2 + y 2- 4 e- x cos y + x 3- 3 xy 2 + 2 x for ( x, y ) 6 = (0 , 0). (a) Compute the first partial derivatives u x = u/x and u y = u/y . Solution: We compute u x by differentiating with respect to x , keeping y constant. Using x ln p x 2 + y 2 = 1 p x 2 + y 2 x ( x 2 + y 2 ) 1 / 2 = 1 p x 2 + y 2 1 2 ( x 2 + y 2 )- 1 / 2 2 x = x x 2 + y 2 , we find u x = x x 2 + y 2 + 4 e- x cos y + 3 x 2- 3 y 2 + 2 . (1) Similarly, u y = y x 2 + y 2 + 4 e- x sin y- 6 xy . (2) (b) Compute u xy = 2 u yx (differentiate first with respect to x , then with respect to y ) and u yx , and show that they are equal; that is, verify Clairauts theorem for this function....
