Mathematical Tools Constrained Optimization L = f ( x , y ) + λ ( g ( x , y )) where f ( x , y ) is the objective function and g ( x , y ) 0 is our constraint. Implicit Function Theorem ± dy dx = f ( x , y ) x f ( x , y ) y f ( x , y )= k Homogeneity of degree k f ( tx , ty ) = t k f ( x , y ) Duality of Constrained Optimization Problems A.
