Minimum of f(x, y) = f(3 ln 2 + 8, 3 ln 2 ).
= −8 ( 3 ln 2 + 7 )
= −72.6355, nearly.
Explanation:
Substitute x = y + 8.
f(x, y) = g(y) = y(y + 8) −(y + 8)^2 + e^y = −8 ( y + 8 ) + e^y..
Necessary condition for g(y) to be either a maximum or a minimum is d d y g(y) = 0.
This gives y = 3 ln 2#.
The second derivative is e^y > 0, for all y. This is the sufficient condition that g(3 ln 2) is the minimum of g(y).

I want to ask whether the following question has a closed form solution:
{ min x c T x  s.t.  1 T x = b x 0
We can write down the kkt condition as:
L = c T x λ 1 , 1 T x b λ 2 , x L / x = c 1 λ 1 λ 2 = 0 [ λ 2 ] i x i = 0 [ λ 2 ] i 0
Denote ith component of c as c i . Now we can see that when ( c i λ 1 ) 0, then we must have x i = 0 and ( c i λ 1 ) = 0, we also must have x i > 0. But I am not sure how to proceed to the next.

let x be a differentiable function x:[a,b]R which satisfies:
dx(t)dt=f(t,x(t))
x(a)=xa
In particular I am trying to understand what f(t,x(t)) means, I understand this represents a multivariable function with parameters t and x(t), but I can't think of what this would mean in the given context?

The half-life of C-14 is about 5730 yr.
a) Archaeologists find a piece of cloth painted with organic dyes. Analysis of the dye in the cloth shows that only 77% of the C-14 originally in the dye remains. When was the cloth painted?
b) A well-preserved piece of wood found at an archaeological site has 6.2% of the C-14 that it had when it was alive. Estimate when the wood was cut.
