Hello
If you evaluate the following:
f[x_, y_] = Tan[a[x, y] + t[x, y]]
D[f[x, y], x]
D[f[x, y], x] + D[f[x, y], x, y] == 8
you will get:
Out[1]=
Tan[a[x, y] + t[x, y]]
Out[2]=
Sec[a[x, y] + t[x, y]]^2*(Derivative[1, 0][a][x, y] +
Derivative[1, 0][t][x, y])
Out[3]=
Sec[a[x, y] + t[x, y]]^2*(Derivative[1, 0][a][x, y] +
Derivative[1, 0][t][x, y]) +
2*Sec[a[x, y] + t[x, y]]^2*Tan[a[x, y] + t[x, y]]*
(Derivative[0, 1][a][x, y] + Derivative[0, 1][t][
x, y])*(Derivative[1, 0][a][x, y] +
Derivative[1, 0][t][x, y]) +
Sec[a[x, y] + t[x, y]]^2*
(Derivative[1, 1][a][x, y] + Derivative[1, 1][t][
x, y]) == 8
If you run the select the above cells (in Mathematica) and convert
them to TraditionalForm (e.g. click Ctrl+Shift+T or menu command
Cell / ConvertTo / TraditionalForm) then you will get a nice display
of the derivatives.
