Differentiability of a function at a point:
A function f(x) is differentiable at a point P iff there exists a unique tangent at point P.
In other words, f(x) is differentiable at a point P iff the curve does not have P as a corner
point i.e. the function is not differentiable at those points on which function has holes and
sharp edges.
Definition of Derivative: Suppose f is a real valued function and a is a point in its
domain of definition. The derivative of f at a is defined by
()
( ) ()
Right hand and left hand derivative:
Right hand derivative of f(x) at x= denoted by
( )
) is
()()
Left hand derivative of f(x) at x= denoted by ( )
) is
()()
A function is said to be differentiable (finitely) at x=, if
( )
( ) . The
common limit is called the derivative of f(x) at x= denoted by
()
i.e.
()
()()
Result on differentiability:
Every polynomial, constant and logarithmic function is differentiable at each x
The logarithmic, trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions are differentiable in their
domain.
The sum, difference, product and quotient of two differentiable functions is differentiable.
If f is derivable in the open interval (a,b) and also at the end points a and b, then f is said to
be derivable in the closed interval [a,b].
A function f is said to be a differentiable function, if it is differentiable at every point of its
domain
If a function is differentiable at a point, it is necessarily continuous at that point but the
converse is not necessarily true.
DIFFERENTIATION FORMULA
The rate of change of a quantity y with respect to another quantity x is called the
derivative or differential coefficient of y with respect to x.

Partial Differentiation:
Let T depend on variables x and y, T=f(x,y). The rate of change of f with respect to x
(holding y constant) is called the partial derivative of f with respect to x and is denoted by
( ). Similarly, the rate of change of f with respect to y is called the partial derivative of f
with respect to y and is denoted by
( ).
