.. oh wait, for say the first one do I get:
f_{1}(x,y,z) = \frac{\sqrt{3}}{3} + \frac{\sqrt{3}}{3} + \frac{\sqrt{3}}{3}
f_{2}(x,y,z) = \frac{\sqrt{3}}{3} + \frac{\sqrt{3}}{3} - \frac{\sqrt{3}}{3}
f_{3}(x,y,z) = \frac{\sqrt{3}}{3} - \frac{\sqrt{3}}{3} + \frac{\sqrt{3}}{3}
f_{4}(x,y,z)...
So as an answer to the first part of the question, I get that the extrema are:
f(x,y,z) = \left(\frac{-2\lambda}{3} , \frac{-2\lambda}{3} , \frac{-2\lambda}{3}\right)
since \lambda = \frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}
.. is this sufficient to state just this? I thought I'd get a list of points maybe...
Homework Statement
Suppose an initial number density of ink particles (i.e. number per unit length) is
given by:
f(x) = 2Nx ; for 0 < x < 1
f(x) = 0 ; otherwise.
Suppose also add a point source containing N molecules at the point x = − 1.
(a) Showing that the initial total...
OK, so I now know the values of x , y , z and of \lambda which should be:
\lambda = \sqrt{\frac{3}{4}} = \pm \frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}
SO that answers part i of the question (where x, y, and z are all non-zero), yep?
Now for part ii (where x = 0), I just do the same but with x = 0? I.e...
.. so from the first three equations I get:
x = \frac{-2\lambda}{3}
y = \frac{-2\lambda}{3}
z = \frac{-2\lambda}{3}
.. then square these values and input into the fourth equation, which gives:
\frac{4\lambda^{2}}{9} + \frac{4\lambda^{2}}{9} + \frac{4\lambda^{2}}{9} - 1 = 0...
I can only see how to solve those first three equations in terms of a quadratic? I.e. that:
\frac{\partial F}{\partial x} = 3x^{2} + 2x \lambda = 0 \implies x = \frac{-2\lambda \pm \sqrt{(2\lambda)^{2}}}{6} \implies x = -3\lambda \pm 2\lambda
.. is this the right way to go?
Ah ok, so it should be:
\frac{\partial F}{\partial \lambda} = x^{2} + y^{2} + z^{2} - 1 = 0
yes?
.. and then how to I go about getting values of x, y, and \lambda? Not sure how to equate those 4 simulataneous equations :confused:
Ermm.. so need to do this:
f(x,y) = x^{3} + y^{3} + z^{3}
g(x,y) = x^{2} + y^{2} + z^{2} = 1
Hence need to then extremise:
F(x,y,\lambda) = f + \lambda y = x^{3} + y^{3} + z^{3} + \lambda \left(x^{2} + y^{2} + z^{2} - 1\right)
So need to then calculate partial derivatives of this...
Thought I may have made a mistake with calculations of the partial derivatives :frown:
So, should be then:
\frac{\partial F}{\partial x} = 2 + 2x\lambda = 0
\frac{\partial F}{\partial x} = 2 + 2y\lambda = 0
\frac{\partial F}{\partial x} = \left(x^{2} + 4y^{2} - 1\right) = 0
...
.. I was doing in the \lambda way (um.. lagrange multiplier?!) as this is how I was taught a similar problem and hence should really use this way.
Looking back through my notes on this, once the values of x and y have been found (as they have been) then just put these into the original...
