Derivative Sign Patterns in Two Dimensions
Schilling, Kenneth
College Mathematics Journal, v44 n2 p102-108 Mar 2013
Given a function defined on a subset of the plane whose partial derivatives never change sign, the signs of the partial derivatives form a two-dimensional pattern. We explore what patterns are possible for various planar domains.
