1. Let the function f : ± R 2 - { -→ 0 } ² R 2 have components f 1 and f 2 as described by f ³ x y ´ = ³ f 1 f 2 ´ = ³ ( x 2 ) y xy 2 ´ (a) Note that the function f is not defined at the origin; this is because the component f 1 is not defined there. Is this discontinuity in f 1 removable? Justify your answer. Solution: We compute limits of f 1 = ( x 2 ) y as we approach the origin from different directions. Along the x -axis, we have y = 0, so: lim x 0 f 1 = lim x 0 ( x 2 ) 0 = lim x 0 1 = 1 Along the y -axis, we have x = 0, so: lim y 0 f 1 = lim y 0 (0 2 ) y = lim x 0 0 = 0 Since these values are different, the limit must not exist. Therefore, the discontinuity in f 1 is not removable. (b) Find the Jacobian matrix for the function f at the point ³ x y ´ = ³ 1 3 ´ . Solution: J f = ∂f 1 ∂x ∂f 1 ∂y ∂f 2 ∂x ∂f 2 ∂y = (2 y ) x 2 y - 1 ln x 2 ( x 2 ) y y 2 2 xy J f, 0 @ 1 3 1 A = 6 0 9 6 2

(c) In what (unit vector) direction -→ u is the function f 1 increasing the fastest, at the point ± x y ² = ± 1 3 ² ? Solution: Since we know the first row of the Jacobian matrix is the gradient vector of f 1 , we see immediately that f ± 1 3 ² = ± 6 0 ² So, the direction (unit vector) in which the function is increasing the fastest is -→ u = f k∇ f k = ± 1 0 ² (d) What is D u f 1 at the point ± x y ² = ± 1 3 ² , where -→ u is the vector determined in part (c)?
