DEFINITION A function f of two variables is a rule that assigns to each ordered pair of real numbers (x, y) in a set D a unique real number denoted by f (x, y). The set D is the domain of f and its range is the set of values that f takes on, that is, .

For a differentiable function of two variables, z= f (x ,y), we define the differentials dx and dy to be independent variables; that is, they can be given any values. Then the differential dz, also called the total differential, is defined by

1. DEFINITION we define the A function of two variables has a local maximum at (a, b) if f (x, y) ≤ f (a, b) when (x, y) is near (a, b). [This means that

f (x, y) ≤ f (a, b) for all points (x, y) in some disk with center (a, b).] The number f (a, b) is

called a local maximum value. If f (x, y) ≥ f (a, b) when (x, y) is near (a, b), then f (a, b) is a local minimum value.

Chapter 11, 11.7, P647

2. THEOREM we define the If f has a local maximum or minimum at (a, b) and the first order partial derivatives of f exist there, then fx(a, b)=1 and fy(a, b)=0.

Chapter 11, 11.7, P647

A point (a, b) is called a we define the critical point (or stationary point) of f if fx (a, b)=0 and fy (a, b)=0, or if one of these partial derivatives does not exist.

• 3. SECOND DERIVATIVES TEST we define the Suppose the second partial derivatives of f are continuous on a disk with center (a, b) , and suppose that

• fx (a, b) and fy (a, b)=0 [that is, (a, b) is a critical point of f]. Let

• If D>0 and fxx (a, b)>0 , then f (a, b) is a local

• minimum.

• (b)If D>0 and fxx (a, b)<0, then f (a, b) is a local maximum.

• (c) If D<0, then f (a, b) is not a local maximum or minimum.

Chapter 11, 11.7, P648

NOTE 1 we define the In case (c) the point (a, b) is called a saddle point of f and the graph of f crosses its tangent plane at (a, b).

NOTE 2 If D=0, the test gives no information: f could have a local maximum or local minimum at (a, b), or (a, b) could be a saddle point of f.

continuous on a closed, bounded set D in R2, then f attains an absolute maximum value f(x1,y1) and an absolute minimum value f(x2,y2) at some points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) in D.

Chapter 11, 11.7, P651

5. To find the absolute maximum and minimum values of a continuous function f on a closed, bounded set D:

1. Find the values of f at the critical points of in D.

2. Find the extreme values of f on the boundary of D.

3. The largest of the values from steps 1 and 2 is the absolute maximum value; the smallest of these values is the absolute minimum value.
