15. MAXIMA AND MINIMA

Synopsis :

1. A function f(x) is said to be increasing in an interval Ι if x1, x2 ∈ Ι, x1<x2⇒f(x1)≤f(x2). 2. A function f(x) is said to be strictly increasing in an interval Ι if x1, x2 ∈ Ι, x1<x2⇒f(x1)<f(x2). 3. A function f(x) is said to be decreasing in an interval Ι if x1, x2 ∈ Ι, x1<x2⇒f(x1)≥f(x2). 4. A function f(x) is said to be strictly decreasing in an interval I if x1, x2 ∈ Ι, x1<x2⇒f(x1)>f(x2). 5. A function f(x) is said to be increasing at x = a if f(a − δ)<f(a)<f(a + δ) for some δ>0 6. A function f(x) is said to be decreasing at x = a if f(a−δ)>f(a)>f(a + δ) for some δ>0 7. A function f(x) is said to be monotonic in an interval Ι if f(x) is either increasing or decreasing in the interval Ι. 8. A function f(x) is said to be increasing at x = a if fI(a)>0 9. A function f(x) is said to be decreasing at x = a if fI(a)<0 10. A function f(x) is said to be stationary at x = a if fI(a) = 0. Then f(a) is called stationary value of f(x) at x = a and the point (a, f(a)) is called stationary point or turning point of f(x). 11. If f(x) has either maximum or minimum at x = a, then fI(a) = 0. 12. If fI(a) = 0 then f(x) need not have maximum or minimum at x = a. 13. A function f(x) differentiable at x = a, has maximum at x = a ⇔ fI(a) = 0, fII(a)<0. 14. A function f(x) differentiable at x = a, has minimum at x = a ⇔ fI(a) = 0, fII(a)>0. 15. If f(x) is increasing function in [a, b] then i) the minimum value of f(x) is f(a). ii) the maximum value of f(x) is f(b). 16. If f(x) is decreasing function [a, b] then i) the minimum value of f(x) is f(b). ii) the maximum value of f(x) is f(a). 17. The maximum value of f(x) = asinx + bcosx + c is c + a2 + b2 . 18. The minimum value of f(x) = asinx + bcosx + c is c− a2 + b2 . 19. The maximum value of acos2x + bsin2x is a and minimum value = b. (if a>b) 1
