OEF several variables functions
--- Introduction ---

This module actually contains 7 exercises on derivatives of
several variables functions.

### Linear approximation

Let
be the real function on
defined by
. Give the linear approximation of
at
. It it does not exist, answer by ** no **.

### Scalar Field 2D

Let a scalar field which represents at a point
of
given by
.
Calculate at the point (,) .
What is the equation of the level curve of constant
The domain where is is

### Directionnal derivatives

Let
be a function C^{1} in two variables with values in
, et
et
two vectors in
defined by

.

If you know the partial derivatives
et
of
in the two directions
et
at
, are you able to calculate the directionnal derivative of
at
in any other direction ?
Let
be the vector defined by w=(, ). Calculate the derivative of
in direction
if
with
.

You are right, it's not possible because the vectors
et
are colinear.

Is it possible that
, with
?
