1. Find the local maximum and minimum values and saddle point(s) of the function.
f(x, y) = (y2
- x2
)ey
.
What can you say about the tangent plane at (0, -2)?
Answer. We first calculate the partial derivatives:
fx = -2xey
; fy = 2yey
+ (y2
- x2
)ey
= (y2
+ 2y - x2
)ey
Since the exponential is never zero, equating both partial derivatives to zero we get
