(a) Find the four points in R 2 at which the gradient of f is zero. Show that f has exactly one local maximum and one local minimum in R 2 . (b) Let S be the set of all ( x,y ) R 2 at which f ( x,y ) = 0. Find those points of S that have no neighborhoods in which the equation f ( x,y ) = 0 can be solved for y in terms of x (or for x in terms of y ). Describe S as precisely as you can. 2. Define f ( x,y ) = braceleftBigg xy ( x 2 y 2 ) x 2 + y 2 ( x,y ) negationslash = (0 , 0) , ( x,y ) = (0 , 0) . Prove that (a) f , D 1 f , and D 2 f are continuous in R 2 . (b) D 12 f and D 21 f exists at every point of R 2 , and are continuous except at (0 , 0). (c) D 12 f (0 , 0) = 1, and D 21 f (0 , 0) = 1. 3. In this problem you are asked to prove the following existence theorem for Ordinary Differential Equations, known as Peanos theorem: Theorem 0.1 (Peanos Existence Theorem)Theorem 0....
