Relative Minimum: A function value f(a) is called a relative minimum of f if there exists an interval (x1, x2) that contains a such that x1 < x < x2 implies f(a) ≤ f(x) Once we allow for graphs to change from increasing to decreasing or decreasing to increasing, we can speak about relative extrema.
