Basic Analysis: Differentiation (2)
Finding Extremum Points One of the most common applications of differentiation is in finding all local maximum and minimum points. Definition. We say f(x) has a local maximum (resp. minimum) at x=a, if there is an open interval (b, c) containing a, such … Continue reading

Basic Analysis: Differentiation (1)
In this article, we’ll look at differentiation more rigourously and carefully. Throughout this article, we suppose f is a realvalued function defined on an open interval (b, c) containing a, i.e. f : (b, c) → R with b < a < c. Theorem. The derivative of f(x) at a is … Continue reading
