Unformatted text preview: The largest value yields the maximum of f subject to the constraint c y x g = ) , ( , and the smallest value yields the minimum of f subject to the constraint c y x g = ) , ( . Example: Minimize 2 2 ) , ( y x y x f + = subject to the constraint 15 4 2 =+ y x . Maximize xyz z y x f = ) , , ( subject to the constraint 6 =+ + z y x . The Method of Lagrange Multipliers can be extended to optimize a problem involving two constraints g and h : h g f ∇ + ∇ = ∇ μ λ Maximize xyz z y x f = ) , , ( subject to the constraints 5 2 2 = + z x and 2 =y x ....
