Proposition 5.2.2. f is (monotone or strictly) increasing on ( a,b ) iff f is order-preserving on ( a,b ) . Proof. Immediate. Definition 5.2.3. f has a local maximum at x iff f ( t ) ≤ f ( x ), for all t ∈ ( x- ε,x + ε ). f has a strict local maximum at x iff f ( t ) > f ( x ), for all t 6 = x in ( x- ε,x + ε ). Theorem 5.2.4. If x is a local max or min of f , then f ( x ) = 0 . Proof. Choose δ such that a < x- δ < x < x + δ < b . Then for x- δ < t < x , we have f ( t )- f ( x ) t- x ≥ . Letting t → x , get f ( x ) ≥ 0. Similarly for the other inequality. Example 5.2.1. f ( x ) = x 3 is strictly increasing, but has derivative 0 at 0....
