Unformatted text preview: nt). Therefore after evaluating CPs, we must also evaluate the function along the boundary of its domain. Example Find the absolute maximum value of the function over the region D bounded by the points The first step is to look for critical points Now we evaluate the function at (0,0) * we do not have to do the second derivative test here, since we are looking for an absolute maximum, if it is a saddle point or a minimum, it means somewhere at the boundary there will be a higher value that we can find during the second ste...
