Appendix E. Lagrange Multipliers
Lagrange multipliers, also sometimes called undetermined multipliers, are used to
nd the stationary points of a function of several variables subject to one or more
constraints.
Consider the problem of nding the maximum of

Vector Spaces
As usual, a collection of objects will be called a set. A member of the
collection is also called an element of the set. It is useful in practice to
use short symbols to denote certain sets. For instance, we denote by R

After many attempts at formalizing space and spatial relationships, the concept of a vector
