Envelope Theorems Let X R n for some positive integer n , let T be an open real interval, and let f : X × T R . 1 Constraint set depends on t Let X = R n , and let g : R n R m for some positive integer m . Consider the problem V ( t ) = max x R m f ( x, t ) (1) subject to the constraint that g ( x, t ) 0. Let L ( x, λ, t ) = f ( x, t ) - λ · g ( x, t ). Assume that The solution x * ( t ) to the problem exists and is unique for every t T . 1 The function x * is differentiable and f , g are twice differentiable on their domains. On a neighborhood of a point t 0 T , the Kuhn-Tucker necessary conditions for the problem hold at ( x * ( t ) , t ) with associated multipliers λ * ( t ) = ( λ * 1 ( t ) , ..., λ * m ( t )) 0. Then V is differentiable at t 0 and V 0 ( t 0 ) = f t ( x * ( t 0 ) , t 0 ) - m i =1 λ * i ( t 0 ) g i t ( x * ( t 0 ) , t 0 ), ? where g = ( g 1 , ..., g m ). Or more compactly V 0 ( t 0 ) = L t ( x * ( t 0 ) , λ * ( t 0 ) , t 0 ). Proof : Differentiate V ( t ) = f ( x * ( t ) , t ) - λ * ( t ) · g ( x * ( t ) , t ) (why is the equality true?) with respect to t , evaluate it at t = t 0 , and use the Kuhn-Tucker conditions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
