Find the critical points and classify them as local maxima, local minima, saddle points, or none of these. Solution The critical points of f(x,y) are obtained from grad f ( x , y ) = ~ 0. This leads to ( f x ( x , y ) = - 3 x 2 + 3 = 0 f y ( x , y ) = - 3 y 2 + 6 y = 0 = ( x = - 1 or x = 1 y = 0 or y = 2 . Therefore, the four critical points are { ( - 1 , 0) , ( - 1 , 2) , (1 , 0) , (1 , 2) } Second derivative test: D ( x , y ) = f xx ( x , y ) f yy ( x , y ) - ( f xy ( x , y )) 2 = ( - 6 x )(6 - 6 y ) - (0) 2 = 36 x ( y - 1) . Consequently, D ( - 1 , 0) = 36 > 0 and f xx ( - 1 , 0) = 6 > 0 implies that ( - 1 , 0) is a local mimimum. D ( - 1 , 2) = - 36 < 0 implies that ( - 1 , 2) is a saddle point. D (1 , 0) = - 36 < 0 implies that (1 , 0) is a saddle point. D (1 , 2) = 36 > 0 and f xx (1 , 2) = - 6 < 0 implies that (1 , 2) is a local maximum. 2. (5pts.) Let f ( x , y ) = 1 xy . Find the quadratic Taylor polynomial Q ( x , y ) valid near (1,2).
