I have a problem where I'd like to minimize a certain function subject to the constraint that a related function is at a maximum, that is I have a function F(a,b) I would like to know what its minimum is when G(a,b) is at a maximum. I'm not sure how to set this problem up, I know that for the function G to have a maximum I have to apply the second partial derivative test but I am not sure how to translate this test into a form useful as a constraint for a Lagrange multiplier problem. Thanks for any advice!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
