The basic task of Pade is to compute a

partial derivative at each point (learning example) P in direction [x.

This equation is shown in this form so the denominator, numerator, and the first

partial derivative of each may be readily identified.

The

Partial Derivative Settlement is subject to conditions, including final court approval.

whose elements are the

partial derivatives of [PHI] with respect to the states x.

Taking into account the above equations and the fact that the

partial derivative of g(*) in (5) with respect to [[xi].

x,y), which are explicit and thus its

partial derivatives are available.

Under these conditions, the

partial derivatives of f(z) are given by:

i] > 0--which includes the case of a monetary effort--because the sign of the

partial derivatives of [e.

Hermite Interpolation" then refers to the situation when not only the values of the function, but the values of some of the

partial derivatives of the function are prescribed.

where the second equality is derived from substituting for the

partial derivatives given in equations (7), (8), and (16).

For stability, the four

partial derivatives are readily obtained as

The gradient of the function is calculated by computing the

partial derivatives using finite differences.
