     Before I go on to investigate this problem, and because I'm not
familiar with the capability of Mathematica, could someone tell me if
Mathematica can:

1) Find the partial derivative of a function of three variables, f(x,y,z),
   with respect to each variable?
2) Find the minimum (x,y,z) for f?

   The function f is not very complicated, involving only first and second
order expressions in x,y, and z.

   I'd very much appreciate a "yes" or "no" answer.
