Martin,
I don't know if it's possible to get rid of the x*y terms
in an expansion such as Series[f[x,y],...] at order 1,
if you keep it in SeriesData form, but I have tried to do so
in Normal Form and it seems to work fine this way :
(everything in InputForm)
In[52]:=mySeries = Expand[Normal[Series[f[x, y], {x, a, 1}, {y, b, 1}]]]
Out[52]=f[a, b] - b*Derivative[0, 1][f][a, b] + y*Derivative[0, 1][f][a, b] -
a*Derivative[1, 0][f][a, b] + x*Derivative[1, 0][f][a, b] +
a*b*Derivative[1, 1][f][a, b] - b*x*Derivative[1, 1][f][a, b] -
a*y*Derivative[1, 1][f][a, b] + x*y*Derivative[1, 1][f][a, b]
In[53]:=Replace[mySeries, ex_ /; MemberQ[ex, x] && MemberQ[ex, y] -> 0, 1]
Out[53]=f[a, b] - b*Derivative[0, 1][f][a, b] + y*Derivative[0, 1][f][a, b] -
a*Derivative[1, 0][f][a, b] + x*Derivative[1, 0][f][a, b] +
a*b*Derivative[1, 1][f][a, b] - b*x*Derivative[1, 1][f][a, b] -
a*y*Derivative[1, 1][f][a, b]
( The term x*y*... has been cancelled )
Hoping this could help,
jfa
