Objectives 1 Extend deﬁnition of single variable function 2 Find the domain and range of multivariable functions 3 Recognize graphs of multivariable functions 4 Draw level curves of multivariable functions 5 Extend ideas of limits and continuity. Lecture 5: Multivariable Functions
Multivariable functions A function of two variables is a rule that assigns to each ordered pair of numbers ( x , y ), a unique real number f ( x , y ). Two inputs: x and y called independent variables. One output z= f ( x , y ) called the dependent variable. Physical examples: 1 Temperature of surface of an ocean at some ﬁxed time longitude and latitude 2 Altitude of the surface of the earth depends on longitude and latitude 3 The area of a right triangle depends on the length of its two legs.
