Abstract: Peano differentiability is a notion of higher-order Fréchet differentiability. H. W. Oliver gave sufficient conditions for the $ m^{{th}}$ Peano derivative to be a Fréchet derivative in the case of functions of a real variable. Here we generalize this theorem to functions of several variables.
