The inverse function theorem

The Inverse Function Theorem

The inverse function theorem1

The Inverse Function Theorem

Theorem: Suppose that f:RnRn is continuously differentiable in an open set containing a, and det f (a)≠0. Then there is an open set V containing a and an open set W containing f(a) such that f:VW has a continuous inverse f -1:WV which is differentiable and for for all y2W satisfies

The inverse function theorem2

The Inverse Function Theorem

Proof: Let  be the linear transformation Df(a). Then  is non-singular, since det f(a)≠0. Now

is the identity linear transformation.

The inverse function theorem3

The Inverse Function Theorem

Proof: If the theorem is true for -1f, it is clearly true for f. Therefore we may assume at the outset that  is the identity.

The inverse function theorem4

The Inverse Function Theorem

Whenever f(a+h)=f(a), we have


The inverse function theorem5

The Inverse Function Theorem

This means that we cannot have f(x)=f(a) for x arbitrarily close to, but unequal to, a. Therefore, there is a closed rectangle U containing a in its interior such that

The inverse function theorem6

The Inverse Function Theorem

Since f is continuously differentiable in an open set containing a, we can also assume that

The inverse function theorem7

The Inverse Function Theorem


we can apply Lemma One to g(x)=f(x)-x to get

The inverse function theorem8

The Inverse Function Theorem


we have

The inverse function theorem9

The Inverse Function Theorem

Now f(boundary U) is a compact set which does not contain f(a). Therefore, there is a number d>0 such that |f(a)-f(x)|≥d for x2boundary U.

The inverse function theorem10

The Inverse Function Theorem

Let W={y:|y-f(a)|<d/2}. If y2W and x2boundary U, then

The inverse function theorem11

The Inverse Function Theorem

We will show that for any y2W there is a unique x in interior U such that f(x)=y. To prove this consider the function g:UR defined by

The inverse function theorem12

The Inverse Function Theorem

This function is continuous and therefore has a minimum on U. If x2boundary U, then, by the formula on slide 20, we have g(a)<g(x). Therefore, the minimum of g does not occur on the boundary of U.

The inverse function theorem13

The Inverse Function Theorem

Since the minimum occurs on the interior of U, there must exist a point x2U so that Djg(x)=0 for all j, that is

The inverse function theorem14

The Inverse Function Theorem

Since the Jacobian [Djf i(x)] is non-singular, we must have

That is, y=f(x). This proves the existence of x. Uniqueness follows from slide 18.

The inverse function theorem15

The Inverse Function Theorem

If V=(interior U)f1(W), we have shown that the function f:VW has inverse f1:WV. We can rewrite


This shows that f-1 is continuous.

The inverse function theorem16

The Inverse Function Theorem

We only need to show that f-1 if differentiable.

Let =Df(x). We will show that f-1 is differentiable at y=f(x) with derivative -1.

The inverse function theorem17

The Inverse Function Theorem

Since =Df(x), we know that

Setting (x)=f(x+h)-f(x)-(h), we know that

The inverse function theorem18

The Inverse Function Theorem

Hence, we have

The inverse function theorem19

The Inverse Function Theorem


The inverse function theorem20

The Inverse Function Theorem

Since every y12W is of the form f(x1) for some x12V, this can be written


The inverse function theorem21

The Inverse Function Theorem

It therefore suffices to show that

Since  is a linear transformation, it suffices to show that

The inverse function theorem22

The Inverse Function Theorem

Recall that

Also, f-1 is continuous, so

The inverse function theorem23

The Inverse Function Theorem


where the first factor goes to 0 and the second factor is bounded by 2. This completes the proof. QED
