Hi, I would like to know how to treat a vector valued function when I want to know where are minima, maxima and saddle points.

Thanks in advance!

Perhaps there is some way to consider such properties, but to me, such concepts no longer have meaning. How could you say a vector has a minimum or maximum value in a region or neighborhood? You could consider the magnitude, but that's a scalar function and requires no more thought than scalar function theory that you're already familiar with.
