Hi all,
   I would like to start by defining H = {{\partial_{x,x} L,\partial_{x,y} L},
                                          {\partial_{y,x} L, \partial_{y,y}L}};
where at this stage, the only think i know is that L is of the form L(x,y). This is a Hessian, and I would like to symbolically compute the e-vals and e-vecs. I wanted to know how I should tell mathematica to consider L as L(x,y) ?


Hi, Sid,

Is this:



Cos[x y] (-Cos[x y]+2 x y Sin[x y])

the function that you mean?

Have fun, Alexei
