Hi everyone, I never used Mathematica before and want to find the minimum for the following function: h(a,b) := g(a,b) / f(a,b) a [0 .. pi] b [pi-a .. pi] f(a,b) := 1/3*(1+1/(4*pi)*(a+b-2*acos(-1-cos(a)- cos(b)))) g(a,b) := 1/8*(2-cos(a)-cos(b)) Could anyone give me step by step intructions? Any help is welcome Thanks in advance Thorsten Sent via Deja.com http://www.deja.com/ Before you buy.
