General Optimization Question

  1. Dec 5, 2007 #1
    How would you go about finding the highest point on the curve of intersection of an ellipsoid and a plane? Given: x^2 + y^2 + z^2 = k and ax + by + cz = j. I was thinking about using Lagrange Multipliers but I would always get stuck.

    How did you set up the problem and where did you get stuck?
