handout continuity of f does not guarantee that the gradient of f exists The result that might surprise you however is that if the gradient of f at 9 exists f is not necessarily continuous there Derivatives De nition 11 Let h E Rquot The functiuu f is differentiable at x E S if there exists a vectur b E Rquot such that hm fxh7fx7b h 0 hgao h If such a vectur 1 exists it is called the derivative If f at x If f is di ere atiaMe at all x E S then it is differentiable Theorem 12 If f is differentiable at x E S then it is cautiuuuus there Theorem 13 Assume that f is cautiuuuus at x E S If 1 the derivative If f at 5 exists then s0 does Vfx and 1 wet Theorem 14 Assume that f S gt R where S is upeu If all If the rst partial derivatives 0quot f exist and are cautiuuuus an S then the

De nition 16 A function has a global or absolute maximum minimum at x if 2 ltfx for all xES lf strict inequality holds in either of the last two de nitions for all x 7E 55 then strong or strict precedes the appropriate terms It should be clear that if f has a global maximum minimum at x then it has a local maximum minimum there De nition 17 A critical stationary point for the function f is a point x E S where 0 for all i 1 n Example Determine all critical points for the function f R2 A R Where 101 100 7 as 7 as Since f1 QJEL f2 23027 we nd that the only critical point is x 0 Theorem 18 Assume that S is an open set and that all of the rst partial derivatives of f exist and are continuous on S If there is a local maximum or local minimum of f at x E S then it must be a critical point 0 Given this result it follows that for the previous example if there is a maximum or minimum for the function r 100 7 xi 7 9037 then it is at x 0 Theorem 19 Weierstrauss Assume that f is a realiualued continuous function on S where S g R is closed and bounded Then f assumes a global maximum and a global minimum on S Example Let f S A R be de ned by 90 3019027 and S x1x2 E R2 x1x2 2 0 and x1 x2 S 10 f is realevalued and continuous in addition S g R2 is closed and bounded Therefore f assumes a global maximum and global minimum on S In fact we convince ourselves that 00 is the unique strict global minimum and 5 5 is the unique strict global maximum De nition 20 We can de ne second order partial derivatives a Second order partial derivative with respect to xi where i 1 n is mm Elli
