comment Monotonicity of the function in some near interval of a local maximum critical point
@iMath If that is your definition then a constant function, e.g. $f(x) = 5$ has a local maximum at every point (since there are no nearby values greater than $5$) but it's not increasing or decreasing (depending on your definition of increasing and decreasing).

comment Why is $f(x)=\sin (2x-\pi)$ the same as $g(x)=-\sin(2x)$?
@user50224 Look at my comment on your original posting.

Step E: If you move $\sin(2x)$ by $\pi$ you get $\sin(2(x - \pi)) = \sin(2x - 2\pi) = \sin(2x)$. What you have actually done is moved it right by $\pi/2$ which is only half a period, hence the negative.

comment how do we interpret this integral from polar co-ordinates
@DavidH For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure he wants your interpretation of the integral.

@DavidH Indeed. I did ask in the comments what he intended but he was adamant they were the same $r$.

Should this really be $dr$?(and not $ds$?)

I think your explanation is good.
