1 Implicit function theorem II Multivariate implicit function theorem (Dini) : Consider a set of equations ( f 1 ( p 1 ,...,p n ; x 1 ,...,x s )= 0; ... ; f s ( p 1 n ; x 1 s )=0 ), and a point ( p 0 ,x 0 ) solution of the equation. Assume: 1. f 1 ,...,f s continuously di f erentiable in a neigh- bourhood of ( p 0 ,x 0 ) ; 2. The following Jakobian matrix f x evaluated at ( p 0 ,x 0 ) has determinant di f erent from 0: f x = ∂f 1 ∂x 1 1 s ... ... ... s 1 ... s ∂xs
Then: 1 .The reisoneandon lyseto ffunct ions x = g ( p ) de f ned in a neighbourhood of p 0 that satisfy f ( p, g ( p )) = 0 and g ( p 0 )= x 0 ; 2. The partial derivative of x i with respect to p k is ∂g i ∂p k = det μ ( f 1 ,...,f s ) ( x 1 ,...x i 1 ,p k ,x i +1 ...,x s ) det ³ f x ´
