I'm fairly new to Sage, so lets see if someone more experienced can help!
Say I have a function f(x) continuous in [a,b] and derivable in (a,b).
How can I implement in Sage a function 'maximum(f,a,b)' that returns the maximum of f(x) in [a,b] (as a numerical approximation, not as an expression)?
Thanks you a lot!NilSun, 15 Apr 2012 15:37:12 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8890/
