Given the problem min −( x1 − 1)2 − (x2 − 1)2 x 1 , x2 ≥ 0 . 10. Consider the four cases: x∗ 1 = 0, x∗ 2 = 0; x∗ 1 = 0, x∗ 2 > 0; x∗ 1 > 0, x∗ 2 = 0; x∗ 1 > 0, x∗ 2 > 0. (b) Which of the points determined in (a) are in fact local minima? 11). Is there a global minimum point? 16 (Second-order necessary optimality conditions). If x∗ is a local mini­ mum point of f over M, the following conditions are satisfied for any feasible direction d at x∗ : (i) d T grad f (x∗ ) ≥ 0 (ii) d T grad f (x∗ ) = 0 implies d T Hf (x∗ )d ≥ 0.

12 (First-order necessary optimality condition for interior points). If the inner point x∗ of M is a local minimum point of f over M, then grad f (x∗ ) = 0 . Proof. At interior points all directions are feasible. 10 implies that d T grad f (x∗ ) ≥ 0 for all vectors d ∈ Rn . Thus, grad f (x∗ ) = 0. 13. Obviously x∗ = (2, 3)T is a local (and global) minimum point of f ( x1 , x2 ) = 5(x1 − 2)2 + 2( x2 − 3)4 over R2 . The necessary condition for an interior point is satisfied: grad f (x∗ ) = 10(x1 − 2) 8 ( x 2 − 3 )3 = x=x∗ 0 0 .

Ii) Q is positive definite, if and only if all successive principal minors are positive. Q is positive semidefinite, if and only if all principal minors are nonnegative. (iii) Q is positive definite, if and only if all eigenvalues are positive. Q is positive semidefinite, if and only if all eigenvalues are nonnegative. 30. Which of the following matrices is positive (semi)definite? ⎛ (a) 3 2 2 4 (b) 9 6 6 4 (c) 2 −4 −4 3 15 ⎜ (d) ⎝ 3 2 3 1 0 ⎞ 2 ⎟ 0⎠ 1 ⎛ 13 ⎜ (e) ⎝ 2 1 2 −3 0 ⎞ 1 ⎟ 4⎠ . 31. Determine all principal minors of the matrix ⎛ ⎞ 2 3 −1 5 ⎜ ⎟ ⎜3 8 2 1⎟ ⎜ ⎟.
