Absolute Maxima and Minima Local Extrema and Absolute Extrema Definition If f ( c ) f ( x ) for all x in the domain of f , then f ( c ) is called the absolute maximum of f . If f ( c ) f ( x ) for all x in the domain of f , then f ( c ) is called the absolute minimum of f . Albert Ku (HKUST) MATH 006 3 / 15
