Multivariable Calculus Clarification Question
I just started to learn about extrema in calc III, and I just got to the second-partials test. While I understand that this is akin to the second derivative test from calc I, is there no such thing as the first derivative test in multi? Like, can I use multiple sign charts for the components of the gradient to see whether or not it is an extrema or not?
