Unformatted text preview: page 1 © Li Chen , Spring 2008 Chapter 4 Chapter 4. Applications of Differentiation 4.1. Maximum and Minimum Values Absolute Maximum and Absolute Minimum • f has an absolute minimum at c if f ( c ) ≤ f ( x ) for all x in D • f has an absolute maximum at c if f ( c ) ≥ f( x ) for all x in D where D is the domain of f ( x ). Local Maximum and Local Minimum We say that f ( c ) is a local maximum if f ( c ) ≥ f ( x ) for all x near c . We say that f ( c ) is a local minimum if f ( c ) ≤ f ( x ) for all x near c . This means that f ( c ) ≥ f ( x ) (or f ( c ) ≤ f ( x )) for all x in some open interval containing c. page 2 © Li Chen , Spring 2008 Chapter 4 Ex 1.
