I assume x(t) = (ln t)^2 which is zero at t=1.

**MathMate**, Saturday, April 6, 2013 at 9:05amAssuming the function is

x(t)=(ln(t))^2

then t has a vertical asymptote at x=0.

which explains why the domain of x(t) is set at x>0.

To find the maximum, we need to find

x'(t)=0

where

x'(t)=2ln(t)/t

and x'(t)=0 at t=1.

Check if maximum or minimum by finding x"(t)=2/t^2 - 2ln(t)/t

so

x"(1)=2 >0

Hence t=1 is a minimum.

Therefore, the function has no maximum, as it increases indefinitely as t inreases for t>1.
