```Hi Shafiq,
OLE has 3 not 2 variables: b1,b2 and p. Do you want a maximum relative
to all 3 variables or only relative to b1 and b2 with p kept constant?
It seems that the variables must fullfill some restrictions, otherwise
OLE is not even real. Further, does OLE really have a global maximum or
are you looking for a local maximum?
