I have three positive variables, x, y and z, subject to the constraint x+y+z=1. My understanding is that because of the constraint, the partial derivative of any of the three variables with respect to another is 1, i.e. dy/dx=dy/dz=dx/dy=dx/dz=dz/dy=dz/dx=1. Does anyone know how to define this system of variables and the constraint in MATLAB so that the partial derivatives are all evaluated as 1?
