Implicit Differentiation

Given is the function F(x,y,z) = x^2+y^3-z.

Determine the Jacobian matrix Dz in P=(1,1,2) using implicit differentiation.

My idea is to calculate ∂z/∂x in P(1,1,2) and ∂z/∂y in P(1,1,2) and then just write it in matrix form.




∂z/∂x in P(1,1,2)=2

∂z/∂y=-((∂F/∂y)/(∂F/∂z))=-(3y2/-1)= 3y^2

∂z/∂y in P(1,1,2)=3

Dz (1,1,2) = (∂z/∂x(1,1,2) ∂z/∂y(1,1,2)), Dz is [1 X 2] matrix

Dz (1,1,2) = (2 3)

I checked the result using explicit differentiation and I obtained the same.

But in the book that I use I saw another approach. Namely, as a hint was given this formula:


I don’t understand how this formula can be used in order to calculate Dz.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

It seems that both approaches are indeed equivalent.

Since Dz is requested, Dx F(x°)=-[Dy F(x°,y°)]^(-1)Dx F(x°,y°) becomes DxyF(x°,y°)=-[Dz F(x°,y°,z°)]^(-1) Dxy F(x°,y°,z°)

It follows that:

-[Dy F(x°,y°)]^(-1)=-[-1]^(-1)

Dxy F(x°,y°,z°)=(2x 3x^2)

Dxy F(1,1,2)=(2 3)


Dz = -[-1]^(-1) (2 3) = (2 3)
