Hi! I'm new here and struggling with a problem.
I have to the function f(x,y)=1/2x^{4}+3y^{2}-6xy
I'm ought to find and classify stationary points.
I'm not sure if I went about this right, but i began assuming ∂f/∂y=0 and ∂f/∂x=0. I got two equations with two unknowns:
(1) 2x^{3}-6y=0
(2) 6y-6x=0
Now I solved for x and y.
(1) y=x^{3}/3
(2) y=x
From this point I'm not sure how to proceed to find and classify stationary points. Help much appreciated.
