Partial Derivatives, continued
The extra condition on
f
that provides a converse for Proposition 4.5 is the continuity of
its partial derivatives, in the sense that
x

U

R
n
into
R
for each
i, j
. (See Proposition 5.3.)
Defnition 5.1.
A function
f
:
U
⊆
R
n
→
R
m
is
continuously di
f
erentiable
if
f
is di
f
er-
entiable at each
x

U

The set of continuously di
f
erentiable functions from
U
into
R
m
is denoted
C
1
(
U,
R
m
), and
the expression “
f

”isanabbrev

t
f

C
1
(
U,
R
m
).
C
1
(
U,
R
)is
abbreviated to
C
1
(
U
).
Continuous di
f
erentiability is a stronger condition than di
f
erentiability, even for real-
valued functions of a single real variable.
