Unformatted text preview: MATH1211/10-11(2)/A3/NKT THE UNIVERSITY OF HONG KONG DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS MATH1211 Multivariable Calculus 2010-11 2nd Semester: Assignment 3 Due date: 2011 February 24 (Thursday), 5:00pm. (The Exercise/problem numbers in the following refer to those in the textbook.) 1. ( § 2.4 no.22) Let f ( x,y ) = xy x 2- y 2 x 2 + y 2 if ( x,y ) 6 = (0 , 0) if ( x,y ) = (0 , 0) . (a) Find f x ( x,y ) and f y ( x,y ) for ( x,y ) 6 = (0 , 0). (b) Find f x (0 ,y ) and f y ( x, 0). (Note: For y 6 = 0, you may use your result in part (a) to get f x (0 ,y ); but you need to compute f x (0 , 0) by other means.) (c) Find the values of f xy (0 , 0) and f yx (0 , 0). Reconcile your answer with Theorem 4.3 on p.129.) 2. ( § 2.5 no.30) Let f ( x,y ) = x 2 y x 2 + y 2 if ( x,y ) 6 = (0 , 0) if ( x,y ) = (0 , 0) . (a) Use the definition of the partial derivative to find f x (0 , 0) and f y (0 , 0)....
