I am a bit confused on to how to prove differentiability in higher dimensions. My understanding is this so far:
1) If partial derivatives of a function exist and are continuous then it follows that the function is differentiable.
2) A function can be differentiable at a point without having its partial derivatives continuous at that point
3) A function is partially differentiable at a point a if and only if:
lim(x->a) (f(x)-f(a)-L(a)*(x-a)) / (x-a) = 0
Where L(a) is a linear function wich is the derivative of of f(a) in R1, the gradiant of f(a) in R2 and the Jacobian of f(a) in Rn. Is this correct?
So by considering all of this, a function can be differentiable at a point and discontinuous everywhere else.
