Then if f is differentiable at t o A and s o = f ( t o ) and r o = f ( t o ) and F is differentiable at x o B , then d F ( f ( t )) d t = F ( s o ) r o = F ( f ( t o )) f ( t o ) For a proof see your course on single variable calculus. Remark 1.1. The range and domain are important see the examples for the circle from the previous lecture. Corollary 1.1. If f and F are twice differentiable then d 2 F ( f ( t )) d 2 t o = d F ( f ( t )) f ( t ) d t t = t o = F ( f ( t o )) f ( t o ) + F ( f ( t o ))( f ( t o )) 2 Example 1.1. x = t 2 , y = exp( t 2 ) , t [0 , ) d y d x = d y d t d t d x = 2 t exp( t 2 ) 1 2 t = exp( t 2 ) Theorem 1.2. Integration by substitution Suppose y = f ( t ) t A is contin- uous and x = g ( t ) is differentiable, then R g ( t 2 ) g ( t 1 ) y d x = R t 2 t 1...
