What is Conditions: Definition and 1000 Discussions

In mathematical optimization, the Karush–Kuhn–Tucker (KKT) conditions, also known as the Kuhn–Tucker conditions, are first derivative tests (sometimes called first-order necessary conditions) for a solution in nonlinear programming to be optimal, provided that some regularity conditions are satisfied.
Allowing inequality constraints, the KKT approach to nonlinear programming generalizes the method of Lagrange multipliers, which allows only equality constraints. Similar to the Lagrange approach, the constrained maximization (minimization) problem is rewritten as a Lagrange function whose optimal point is a saddle point, i.e. a global maximum (minimum) over the domain of the choice variables and a global minimum (maximum) over the multipliers, which is why the Karush–Kuhn–Tucker theorem is sometimes referred to as the saddle-point theorem.The KKT conditions were originally named after Harold W. Kuhn and Albert W. Tucker, who first published the conditions in 1951. Later scholars discovered that the necessary conditions for this problem had been stated by William Karush in his master's thesis in 1939.

    I Optical pumping vs Rabi cycle - what is the difference between their conditions?

    Optical pumping "is a process in which light is used to raise (or "pump") electrons from a lower energy level in an atom or molecule to a higher one". In contrast, Rabi cycle "is the cyclic behavior of a two-level quantum system in the presence of an oscillatory driving field." In the first we...

    Is it possible to find matrix A satisfying certain conditions?

    Since Ax = b has no solution, this means rank (A) < m. Since ##A^T y=c## has exactly one solution, this means rank (##A^T##) = m Since rank (A) ##\neq## rank (##A^T##) so matrix A can not exist. Is this valid reasoning? Thanks
