differentiability of functions from $\mathbb R^2$ to $\mathbb R^2$

I have a question where i solved half of it but couldn't continue, any help would be great and thanks in advance.

We have the function $$F(x,y)=( \cos x -\sin y, \sin x -\cos y)$$ the function is defined on $\mathbb R^2$ with the usual euclidean norm.

1) Show that $F$ is $C^1$ over $\mathbb R^2$.

Answer: $F(x,y)=(F_1(x,y),F_2(x,y))$ and \begin{align} \frac{\partial F_1}{\partial x}(x,y)&=-\sin x,\\ \frac{\partial F_1}{\partial y}(x,y)&=-\cos y,\\ \frac{\partial F_2}{\partial x}(x,y)&=\cos x,\\ \frac{\partial F_2}{\partial y}(x,y)&=\sin y. \end{align}

The four partial derivatives are continuous so $F$ is of class $C^1$ over $\mathbb R^2$.

2) Show that $\|dF(x,y)\| \leq \sqrt{2}$ for every $(x,y)$. \begin{align} dF(x,y)&=\left(\frac{\partial F_1}{\partial x}(x,y) + \frac{\partial F_1}{\partial y}(x,y) , \frac{\partial F_2}{\partial x}(x,y) +\frac{\partial F_2}{\partial y}(x,y)\right)\\ &= (-\sin x -\cos y, \cos x+ \sin y). \end{align} so $$\|dF(x,y)\| = \sqrt{ (-\sin x -\cos y)^2 +(\cos x+ \sin y )^2 } =\sqrt{2 +2(\sin x\cdot \cos y + \cos x\cdot \sin y)}.$$

but then I don't find it less than $\sqrt{2}$.

3) Show that the following recurrence sequence defined by $x_0, y_0\in \mathbb R$ and $$x_{n+1}=0.5(\cos x_n -\sin y_n) \quad\text{and}\quad y_{n+1}= 0.5(\sin x_n - \cos y_n)$$ is convergent.

How to solve part 3?

Thanks to all.

Please do use LaTeX to write mathematics in this, otherwise it is hard to understand what you mean. You can find direction in the FAQ section – DonAntonio Feb 22 '13 at 11:59
@jim Please do the edits in one go. Don't change only tiny bits in several turns. – Julian Kuelshammer Feb 22 '13 at 12:02
@JulianKuelshammer sorry for that – jim Feb 22 '13 at 12:04

Your derivate should be a $2\times 2$-Matrix. For the sequence: Write $(x_n,y_n)$ in terms of $F$. Whats the derivative of that "function". Potentially, you can find a contraction.

if my derivative should be 2x2-Matrix how would i find its norm? – Sahar Monlite Feb 23 '13 at 14:20
