Spring 2006 Math 332 - Real Analysis II Quiz 2, 5/4/2006 1. Let f : R n R be a C 2 function; x o , u R n be fixed. Consider h : R R defined as h ( t ) = f ( x 0 + ut ). Calculate Dh (0) and D 2 h (0) in terms of the partial derivatives of f . Show your work in full detail . 2. We now finish the example we did not finish during the class; we investigate the nature of the critical point(s) of f ( x, y ) = x 2 + 2 xy + y 2 + 6. One easy way to do this is by observing that f ( x, y ) = ( x + y ) 2 +6. We choose a longer approach which would be valid for similar cases.

Unformatted text preview: (a) Determine the critical point(s) of f . (b) Show that the bilinear form D 2 f ( a ) is semi-deﬁnite. Use directly the deﬁnition of positive/negative (semi)-deﬁniteness of bilinear forms. Do not use the criteria that we did not prove in the class. (c) Along the direction vectors for which the strict deﬁniteness is bro-ken, investigate if f increases or decreases. Ferit ¨ Ozt¨urk, Bo˘gazi¸ci University 2006...

What students are saying

• 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.
