We examine some ways of proving the Implicit Function Theorem and the Inverse Function Theorem within Bishop's constructive mathematics. Section 2 contains a new, entirely constructive proof of the Implicit Function Theorem. The paper ends with some comments on the application of the Implicit Function Theorem in classical mechanics. 1 Introduction In this paper, which is written entirely within the framework of constructive mathematics #BISH# erected by the late Errett Bishop #2#, we examine a standard proof of the Implicit Function Theorem and give a completely new proof. As far as understanding constructive mathematics goes, the reader need only be aware that when working constructively,weinterpret #existence" strictly as #computability". To do so, we need to be careful about our logic. For example, when we prove a disjunction P Q; we need to either produce a proof of P or produce a proof of Q; it is not enough, constructively, to show that : #:P :Q#:To understand this better, con...
