Re: Symbolic Optimization Problem


Hello Gonca,

I suggest starting with a simpler problem which is a subset of your
problem:

f = (1/R)^(\[Beta]/(1 - \[Beta]));

I examine it's behavior for various values of \[Beta]

Plot[Table[f, {\[Beta], 0.1, .9, .1}], {R, -1, 1}]

Now, it seems that there is a more basic question: why doesn't the
following evaluate?

Maximize[{(1/R)^(\[Beta]/(1 - \[Beta])),   0 < \[Beta] < 1}, {R, \
[Beta]}]

It appears that the maximum of this function occurs in the limit \
[Beta]->1 and R->0.
