With the expansion of recent computing strength it has turn into attainable to use way more arithmetic to genuine difficulties. This has ended in the trouble that many of us who've been operating in a number of jobs without warning locate themselves no longer realizing the trendy processing that's being utilized to their very own expert box. It additionally implies that the folk almost immediately being knowledgeable in those matters have to comprehend a much broader diversity of mathe matics than some time past. it really is to either one of those teams that this e-book is addressed. the most important target is to give the reader with the elemental mathematical knowing to keep on with the recent advancements of their personal box. the maths during this booklet is predicated at the have to comprehend sign method ing. the fashionable paintings during this zone is mathematically very refined and our objective isn't to coach specialist mathematicians yet to make way more of the literature available. for the reason that this publication is predicated on classes devised for Racal Geophysics there's in actual fact going to be a bias in the direction of the functions in that quarter, because the identify implies. it's also real that the bibliogra phy has been selected so as to relief the reader in that box by means of pointing them towards fresh functions in geophysics.

3 MAXIMA AND MINIMA An immediate and very useful application of derivatives is in finding the maximum or minimum of a function. Suppose we have a function y = f(x) as illustrated in Fig. 9, and we are trying to find the lowest point. The low point is the bottom of the valley and if we move along the function we move downhill until we reach the bottom and then move uphill. Thus dy / dx is first negative and then becomes positive. At the minimum it is zero. If we have a hill then to reach the peak we go uphill and then downhill so, for a maximum, dy / dx is first positive, dy / dx = 0 at the peak, then dy / dx is negative.

If we wish to sketch a curve it is very useful to know the turning points, for example consider y dy dx =x4 +2x 3 -3x2 -4x+4 3 2 -=4x +6x -6x-4 39 Calculus: Differentiation Fig. 11 Turning points occur at x = -2, -hnd 1 where = -2 is a minimum x = -~ is a maximum x x=1 is a minimum if x is large and negative y > 0 if x is large and positive y > 0 and the function is shown in Fig. 11. Suppose y = x 3 - 8, then dy / dx = 3x 2 and we have a stationary point at x = O. For x < 0 and x> 0, d y / dx > O.

27. If we put a in at the beginning we get a out at the end. In terms of an equation, we say that g(f(a» = a. Similarly we require thatf(g(b» = b. We call such a g the inverse function to f and write it as Consider the following fairly simple example: Let f(x)=3x + 1 rl. y=f(x) so f(O) = I f(l)=4 Then it is possible to show that g(y) = t(y -I) so J(g(y» = 3H(y -I)} + 1= y and g(f(x» = H(3x + I) -I} = x From Fig. 28 we can read off a value of x for any y by following the dotted line. Thus getting rl(y) from the same sketch as f(x).
