Here we only emphasize the importance of chain rule for the derivative of the composition of two functions, and the higher order derivatives. We look at some basic problems below. • 1. Find the derivative of the function y = x 1 x . • 2. Given the function y = f (ln x ) , where f is a differentiable function, compute the derivatives y and y 00 . • 3. Suppose y = f ( x ) has the inverse function x = f 1 ( y ) , and both are differentiable , then use the chain rule to find ( f 1 ) and ( f 1 ) 00 . • First...
