Hi, Everyone:

I am having trouble figuring out what the critical points would be for any such map

f:R^n -->R^m , m>1.

Problem is that I know sufficient conditions for differentiability (partials exist and

are continuous.) but not necessary ones. So our differential is given by an

mxn matrix. In the case of n=m, we just want the Jacobian matrix to be invertible,

but I am not clear on how to deal with this issue when n=/m.

Any Hints, Please.?

Thanks.
