Step 1
Given function is .
The all relevant second derivatives are ${f}_{xx},{f}_{yy},{f}_{xy},{f}_{yx}$.
Step 2
Find partial derivative with respect to x for the function $f\left(x,y\right)={x}^{2}y-x{y}^{2}$.
$⇒{f}_{x}=2xy-{y}^{2}$
Find partial derivative with respect to y for the function $f\left(x,y\right)={x}^{2}y-x{y}^{2}$.
$⇒{f}_{y}={x}^{2}-2xy$
Differentiate function ${f}_{x}=2xy-{y}^{2}$ withe respect to x to get ${f}_{×}$.
$⇒{f}_{xx}=2y$
Substitute $y=\frac{s}{t}\in {f}_{xx}=2y$.
$⇒{f}_{xx}=\frac{2s}{t}$
Differentiate function ${f}_{y}={x}^{2}-2xy$ with respect to y to get ${f}_{yy}$.
$⇒{f}_{yy}=-2x$
Substitute x=st in ${f}_{yy}=-2x$.
$⇒{f}_{yy}=-2st$
Differentiate function ${f}_{y}={x}^{2}-2xy$ with respect to x to get ${f}_{xy}$.
$⇒{f}_{xy}=2x-2y$
Substitute $x=st,y=s\in {f}_{xy}=2x-2y$.
$⇒{f}_{xy}=2st-\frac{2s}{t}$
Differentiate function $fx=2xy-{y}^{2}$ with respect to y to get ${f}_{yx}$.
$⇒{f}_{yx}=2x-2y$
Substitute $x=st,y=s\in {f}_{yx}=2x-2y$
$⇒{f}_{yx}=2st-\frac{2s}{t}$.
Step 3
Therefore, all relevant second derivatives of function
