This is a contravariant vector transformation. (Guys I am really sorry for making the formula above looks so incomprehensible as I still new to this.)

For the y in the partial derivative, is y a function in terms of x? In that sense, is it formula that maps x to y? Is it something like how much units of x correspond to each unit of y?
