Vector Functions; Calculus: (13.1, 13.2) Given functions f 1 ( t ) ,f 2 ( t ) 3 ( t ) de- Fned on some t -interval I . The vector f ( t )=( f 1 ( t ) 2 ( t ) 3 ( t )) = f 1 ( t ) i + f 2 ( t ) j + f 3 ( t ) k is called vector-valued function or vec- tor function . 1

Examples: 1. f ( t )=( f 1 ( t ) ,f 2 ( t ) 3 ( t )) f 1 ( t ) = 2+3 t, f 2 ( t ) = 1+4 t, f 3 ( t )=3 - 2 t, I : -∞ <t< 2. f ( t f 1 ( t ) 2 ( t ) 3 ( t )) f 1 ( t ) = 3sin 2 t, f 2 ( t ) = 4cos 2 t, f 3 ( t )=1 I :0 t 2 π 2

Calculus of Vector Functions I. Limits: Let c I . lim t c f ( t )= L = L 1 i + L 2 j + L 3 k if and only if lim t c ± f ( t ) - L ± =0 if and only if lim t c f 1 ( t L 1 , lim t c f 2 ( t L 2 , lim t c f 3 ( t L 3 That is: limits are calculated ”component- wise.” 4

II. Continuity f ( t )= f 1 ( t ) i + f 2 ( t ) j + f 3 ( t ) k is con- tinuous at t = c if and only if lim t c f ( t f ( c ) . f is continuous on an interval I if and only if it is continuous at each point c I . 7

III. Differentiation: f ( t )= f 1 ( t ) i + f 2 ( t ) j + f 3 ( t ) k is dif- ferentiable at t if and only if lim h 0 1 h [ f ( t + h ) - f ( t )] exists . f ( t f 1 ( t ) i + f 2 ( t ) j + f 3 ( t ) k is dif- ferentiable at t if and only if each of f 1 ,f 2 3 is differentiable at t and, if so, f ± ( t f ± 1 ( t ) i + f ± 2 ( t ) j + f ± 3 ( t ) k 9
