Take the function(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

$$f(x) = ax^{2} + bx^{4} - c \cos(x/d),$$

where ##a##, ##b##, ##c## and ##d## are arbitrary parameters.

For some given choice of the parameters, how do you find the number of local minima of the function and the location of the minima?
