(jə′kō·bē·ən)

xi is the determinant of the matrix whose ith row lists all the first-order partial derivatives

of the function ƒi(x1, x2, …, xn). Also known as Jacobian determinant.

Wikipedia: Jacobian

Home > Library > Miscellaneous > Wikipedia

This page is about the concept in vector calculus. For the French Revolution faction, see

Jacobin. For the followers of James II of England and VII of Scotland, see Jacobitism.

For other uses see Jacobean.

In vector calculus, the Jacobian is shorthand for either the Jacobian matrix or its

determinant, the Jacobian determinant.

In algebraic geometry the Jacobian of a curve means the Jacobian variety: a group

variety associated to the curve, in which the curve can be embedded.

These concepts are all named after the mathematician Carl Gustav Jacob Jacobi. The term

"Jacobian" is normally pronounced /jəˈkoʊbiən/, but sometimes also /dʒəˈkoʊbiən/.

Jacobian matrix

The Jacobian matrix is the matrix of all first-order partial derivatives of a vector-valued

function. That is, the Jacobian of a function describes the orientation of a tangent plane to

the function at a given point. In this way, the Jacobian generalizes the gradient of a scalar

valued functions of multiple variables which itself generalizes the derivative of a scalar-

valued function of a scalar. Likewise, the Jacobian can also be thought of as describing

the amount of "stretching" that a transformation imposes. For example, if (x2,y2) = f(x1,y1)

is used to transform an image, the Jacobian of f, J(x1,y1) describes how much the image in

the neighborhood of (x1,y1) is stretched in the x, y, and xy directions.

Jacobian, but a function doesn't need to be differentiable for the Jacobian to be defined,

since only the partial derivatives are required to exist.

Its importance lies in the fact that it represents the best linear approximation to a

differentiable function near a given point. In this sense, the Jacobian is the derivative of a

multivariate function. For a function of n variables, n > 1, the derivative of a numerical

function must be matrix-valued, or a partial derivative.

function is given by m real-valued component functions, y1(x1,...,xn), ..., ym(x1,...,xn). The

partial derivatives of all these functions (if they exist) can be organized in an m-by-n

matrix, the Jacobian matrix J of F, as follows:

The i th row (i = 1, ..., m) of this matrix is the gradient of the ith component function yi:

.

If p is a point in Rn and F is differentiable at p, then its derivative is given by JF(p). In

this case, the linear map described by JF(p) is the best linear approximation of F near the

point p, in the sense that

Examples

coordinates (x1, x2, x3) is given by the function F : R+ × [0,π) × [0,2π) → R3 with

components:

is

This example shows that the Jacobian need not be a square matrix.

In dynamical systems

Consider a dynamical system of the form x' = F(x), with F : Rn → Rn. If F(x0) = 0, then x0

is a stationary point. The behavior of the system near a stationary point can often be

determined by the eigenvalues of JF(x0), the Jacobian of F at the stationary point.[1]

Jacobian determinant

If m = n, then F is a function from n-space to n-space and the Jacobian matrix is a square

matrix. We can then form its determinant, known as the Jacobian determinant. The

Jacobian determinant is also called the "Jacobian" in some sources.

The Jacobian determinant at a given point gives important information about the behavior

of F near that point. For instance, the continuously differentiable function F is invertible

near a point p ∈ Rn if the Jacobian determinant at p is non-zero. This is the inverse

function theorem. Furthermore, if the Jacobian determinant at p is positive, then F

preserves orientation near p; if it is negative, F reverses orientation. The absolute value of

the Jacobian determinant at p gives us the factor by which the function F expands or

shrinks volumes near p; this is why it occurs in the general substitution rule.

Example

is

From this we see that F reverses orientation near those points where x1 and x2 have the

same sign; the function is locally invertible everywhere except near points where x1 = 0

or x2 = 0. Intuitively, if you start with a tiny object around the point (1,1,1) and apply F to

that object, you will get an object set with approximately 40 times the volume of the

original one.

Uses

The Jacobian determinant is used when making a change of variables when integrating a

function over its domain. To accommodate for the change of coordinates the Jacobian

determinant arises as a multiplicative factor within the integral. Normally it is required

that the change of coordinates is done in a manner which maintains an injectivity between

the coordinates that determine the domain. The Jacobian determinant, as a result, is

usually well defined.
