How can we deduce that f only has finitely many non-degenerate critical points by this function only has non-degenerate critical point? And how can we use the compact manifold’s properties to solve the question?

Let f : R 2 R be a function such that
f ( x , y ) = 5 x 2 + x y 3 3 x 2 y .
Is ( 0 , 0 ) a local maximum, local minimum or a saddle point?

Suppose f : R R has two continuous derivatives, has only one critical point x 0 , and that f ( x 0 ) < 0. Then f achieves its global maximum at x 0 , that is f ( x ) f ( x 0 ) for all x R .

Why does a nontrivial V V have a critical point?
asked 2022-08-16
If the hessian evaluated at a critical point is positive (negative) definite, then we can conclude that it's a local minimum (maximum) there. If the hessian is indefinite (both negative and positive eigenvalues), then it's a saddle point.
What happens if the Hessian is positive SEMI-definite?
