implicit function theorem

[im′plis·ət ¦fəŋk·shən ‚thir·əm]
(mathematics)
A theorem that gives conditions under which an equation in variables x and y may be solved so as to express y directly as a function of x ; it states that if F (x,y) and ∂ F (x,y)/∂ y are continuous in a neighborhood of the point (x0, y0) and if F (x,y) = 0 and ∂ F (x,y)/∂ y ≠ 0, then there is a number ε > 0 such that there is one and only one function ƒf(x) that is continuous and satisfies F [x,ƒ(x)] = 0 for | x-x0| < ε,="" and="" satisfies="">x0) = y0.

Due to the Implicit Function Theorem [6], the solution manifold of F([xi], [tau], [DELTA]x, [phi]) = 0 can be locally parameterized by [tau] and [xi]; that is, there exist functions
1), we can solve, for instance, for x and y in terms of z; according to the implicit function theorem, it is enough to assume that the Jacobian [partial derivative]([[phi].

After a chapter on general preliminaries, chapters cover differential calculus of boundary perturbations, the implicit function theorem, bifurcation problems, the transversality theorem, generic perturbation of the boundary, boundary operators for second-order elliptic equations, and the method of rapidly oscillating solutions.

The main characteristic of this methodology is that it relies essentially oil critical assumptions for the desired monotonicity conclusions and dispenses with superfluous assumptions that are often imposed only by the use of the classical method, which is based oil the Implicit Function Theorem and includes smoothness, interiority, and concavity.
