Max and Min

Part of the Grundlehren der mathematischen Wissenschaften book series (GL, volume 317)

Questions about the maximum or minimum of a function f relative to a set C are fundamental in variational analysis. For problems in n real variables, the elements of C are vectors x = (x1,…, x n ) ∊ ℝ n . In any application, f or C are likely to have special structure that needs to be addressed, but we begin here with concepts associated with maximization and minimization as general operations.
