Local Extrema in Normed Linear Spaces

Part of the Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics book series (UTM)


In ℝd, it is possible to give conditions which are necessary in order that a function f have a local extremal value on a subset D, expressed in terms of the vanishing of its gradient ∇f (§0.5). In this chapter, we shall obtain analogous variational conditions which are necessary to characterize local extremal values of a function J on a subset D of a linear space Y supplied with a norm which assigns a “length” to each yY.
