\[ f(x,y)=f(x_0,y_0)+(xx_0)\frac{\partial f}{\partial x}+(yy_0)\frac{\partial f}{\partial y}+\frac{1}{2!} ( (xx_0)^2\frac{\partial^2 f}{\partial x^2} \]
\[ +2(yy_0)(xx_0)\frac{\partial^2f}{\partial xy}+(yy_0)^2\frac{\partial^2 f}{\partial y^2})+... \]
Why?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm having trouble with getting the intuition behind the Taylor series when the function is multivariabled. I know that you can prove the Taylor series with integration by parts, but I'm not sure how you would use that here (if at all). I assume the answer to this question will be closely associated with the total differential of a multiplication variable to a high degree of approximation (I mean with dx^n dy^m lying about the place, where n>1 and/or m>1).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So all coefficients define by m,n derivatives of f(x,y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I understand what it is saying, but why is the second assumption allowable? That is the essence of my question.
