comment How do I find the relative extrema of a function in spherical coordinates?
In calculating $\nabla f$, you didn't use the spherical coordinate specific form... Is this because we don't care about the direction vectors in finding the stationary points, but just the magnitude?

comment Min,max distances between point and spherical surface
Could you please elaborate on some of this? I read up a bit on Lagrange Multipliers; I get that I want to constrain the solution. I don't really know how to go from four points on the surface to constraints defining the projected bounding box.
