Find the point(s) on the hyperbolic paraboloid z = ( y 2) 2 ( x + 1) 2 + 1 nearest to the point (1,2,3). Solution: We want to minimize the function F ( x, y ) = ( x + 1) 2 + ( y 2) 2 + ( z 3) 2 with the constraint g ( x, y ) = z ( y 2) 2 + ( x + 1) 2 1 = 0. Using Lagrange’s method ~ ∇ F = λ ~ ∇ g we get 2( x + 1) = 2 λ ( x + 1) 2( y 2) = 2 λ ( y 2) 2( z 3) = λ Investigating these equations we see that there are two sets of solutions: Case I: λ = 1. This implies y = 2 and z = 7 / 2. However for these y and z values the constraint equation is not solvable for any...
