390 CHAPTER 3. REAL-VALUED FUNCTIONS: DIFFERENTIATION The second partials are f xx = 4 f xy = 2 f xz = 2 f yy = 4 f yz = 2 f zz = 2 so Δ 3 = det 4 2 2 2 4 2 2 2 2 = 4(8 4) 2(4 4) + 2(4 8) = 16 0 8 = 8 > 0 Δ 2 = (4)(4) (2)(2) = 12 Δ 1 = 4 > 0 so the Hessian is positive defnite , and f has a local minimum at (3 , 1 , 2). Exercises for § 3.9 Practice problems: 1. For each quadratic form Q below, (i) write down its matrix representative [ Q ]; (ii) ±nd all eigenvalues of [ Q ]; (iii) ±nd corresponding unit eigenvectors; (iv) write down the weighted squares representative of
