FRE 6083 Homework 3 Question 1 Differentiation practice. Find the first derivative of the function 10 0 . 5 u1D465 2 + uni221A.alt01 log(1 + u1D465 2 ) + 4 log( u1D465 ) exp( u1D465 ) Question 2 Partial derivatives of a multivariable function. The stationary points of a function of several variables are found by setting all the partial derivatives to zero and solving the resulting set of equations—the first order conditions . The second order conditions , properties of the Hessian, determine the type of stationary point—minimum, maximum, saddle point,... (a) Calculate the gradient vector of the function u1D453 ( u1D465, u1D466 ) = u1D465 2 u1D466 2 u1D465 4 u1D466 and hence find the stationary points, if any. (b) Calculate the Hessian of the function in (a). Compute the eigenvalues of the Hessian at the stationary points found in (a). In each case determine if the Hessian is positive definite or negative definite. Question 3 Simplifying determinants.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
