Suppose thatF:D⊂Rn×Rm→Rn, withF(x0,y0)=0. The classical implicit function theorem requires thatF is differentiable with respect tox and moreover that ∂1F(x0,y0) is nonsingular. We strengthen this theorem by removing the nonsingularity and differentiability requirements and by replacing them with a one-to-one condition onF as a function ofx.
