Absolute extrema of a multivariable function bounded by an ellipse

I have a function $f(x,y) = 2x + x^2 + y^2$ bounded by the ellipse $x^2 + 4y^2 \leq 24$ I know how to determine the extrema within the ellipse by getting the partial derivatives and setting them to ...

Finding absolute max and min values of function

Function given as $f(x,y) = 3x^2 + 2xy^2$. If $(x,y)$ lies in the region inside including edges of the triangle in the first quadrant given by $x\ge0, y\ge0, y\le2-x$. Reduce $f$ to a single variable ...
If we consider the following problem $$\mathbb{E}[(Y-y)^2 | X=x]$$ I can easily show that the minimum with respect to $y$ occurs at $$y=\mathbb{E}[Y |X=x]$$ How can I find the minimum of  ...
How would I go about minimizing the expression $\left(|z_1| + |z_2|\right) \times \left(|z_1 + z_2| + |z_1 - z_2|\right)$ subject to the constraint $|z_1|^2 + |z_2|^2 = 1$ given that $z_1$ and ...
