Abstract

To deduce the maxima and the minima of the function u from the method that we have indicated, we should begin by eliminating from this function m different variables with the help of the formulas in (2). After this elimination, the variables which remain, to number \(n-m, \, \) should be considered as independent; and, the systems of values of these variables should be sought which render the function u or the function du discontinuous, as well as those which satisfy, whatever the differentials of these same variables, the equation.
