Find the relative extrema of f(x,y)=-x^(3)+4xy-2y^(2)+1

**Damon**, Sunday, March 16, 2014 at 1:35pmfx = 3 x^2 + 4 y

level if x = +/-(4y/3)^.5

fxx = 6 x

fxy = 4

fy = 4 x - 4 y level when x = y

fyy = -4

fyx = 4

extreme only when x = y = 0

H matrix

6 x 4

4 -4

det = -6x - 4

if x = 0, det = -4

if det <0 then (0,0) is a "saddle point"
