  2. 2. What is an inverse function? Definition Let f be a function with domain D and range E. The inverse of f is the function f −1 defined by: f −1 (b) = a, where a is chosen so that f (a) = b. So f −1 (f (x)) = x, f (f −1 (x)) = x V63.0121.021, Calculus I (NYU) Section 3.5 Inverse Trigonometric Functions November 2, 2010 4 / 32 What functions are invertible? In order for f −1 to be a function, there must be only one a in D corresponding to each b in E. Such a function is called one-to-one The graph of such a function passes the horizontal line test: any horizontal line intersects the graph in exactly one point if at all. If f is continuous, then f −1 is continuous.

  5. 5. Caution: Notational ambiguity sin2 x = (sin x)2 sin−1 x = (sin x)−1 sinn x means the nth power of sin x, except when n = −1! The book uses sin−1 x for the inverse of sin x, and never for (sin x)−1 . I use csc x for 1 sin x and arcsin x for the inverse of sin x.

Then f −1 is defined in an open interval containing b = f (a), and (f −1 ) (b) = 1 f (f −1(b)) In Leibniz notation we have dx dy = 1 dy/dx Upshot: Many times the derivative of f −1 (x) can be found by implicit differentiation and the derivative of f : V63.0121.021, Calculus I (NYU) Section 3.5 Inverse Trigonometric Functions November 2, 2010 17 / 32 Notes Notes Notes 5 Section 3.5 : Inverse Trigonometric FunctionsV63.0121.021, Calculus I November 2, 2010
  6. 6. Illustrating the Inverse Function Theorem Example Use the inverse function theorem to find the derivative of the square root function. Solution (Newtonian notation) Let f (x) = x2 so that f −1 (y) = √ y. Then f (u) = 2u so for any b > 0 we have (f −1 ) (b) = 1 2 √ b Solution (Leibniz notation) If the original function is y = x2 , then the inverse function is defined by x = y2 . Differentiate implicitly: 1 = 2y dy dx =⇒ dy dx = 1 2 √ x V63.0121.021, Calculus I (NYU) Section 3.5 Inverse Trigonometric Functions November 2, 2010 18 / 32 Derivation: The derivative of arcsin Let y = arcsin x, so x = sin y.

  10. 10. Application Example One of the guiding principles of most sports is to “keep your eye on the ball.” In baseball, a batter stands 2 ft away from home plate as a pitch is thrown with a velocity of 130 ft/sec (about 90 mph). At what rate does the batter’s angle of gaze need to change to follow the ball as it crosses home plate?
