        In the range {t,50,80},{k,2,5} there is no local minimum. The
absolute minimum in this range is 59185.3, at coordinates t=50 and k=2. Of
course, the function goes to infinity when k=-0.75. This can be seen using
the Plot3D command. The commmand FindMinimum works only for local minimums.

hope this will help you
