### Texts about global minima in functionals

I am doing some numerics where I found the minimal value of a functional that does not satisfy the Euler-Lagrange equation associated. I think I am dealing with a minimal value that is not a local ...

### Extended and well detailed bibliography for the cubic algorithm in global optimization of Lipschitz-continuous functions.

Does anyone know which could be a nice bibliography for the topic? I'm headed to develope the cubic algorithm (maths and code) for global optimization of Lipschitz-continous functions with several ...

### Is there any way to solve df(t)/dt = 0 for t and f(tsolved) value if we know F(s), the Laplace transform of f?

I am trying to know max(f(t)) value but I have only F(s) equation of it and I thought that by solving df(t)/dt == 0 by Laplace using F(s) which is s*F(s) == 0, I can easily solve what is t for max(f(t)...

### What if we have 2 same local extrema, how do we deal with global extrema?

I wonder, if I have to analyze some function and find global extrema. for example this function: It has 2 equal local maxima. So what local maximum should I settle as global? Can I both or have to ...

### Global optimization

Assume that I want to find the global minimum of a non-linear, non-convex, multidimensional function subject to several restrictions. Could you recommend me any deterministic strategy which can ...

### Global min-max optimization

When is $$\min_X \max_Y f(X,Y)$$ globally solvable? I.e., when can we find global solution for the optimization problem? I am not looking for reformulations. Is it only ...
