```I appreciate both your help!
I was trying it the other way because I'm more interested in the speed of
the solution than in the precision. Ultimately, what I need to do is to find
the optimum "a" for at least thousands of values of r.
Say, for a couple of values:

Table[NMaximize[{obj, cpoAg1 == 0 && cpoAg2 == 0 && x > 0.1 && y > 0.1}, {a,

x, y}], {r, 0.4, 1, 0.2}]]

It seems that my approach doesn't improve the speed for most values of r, so

If someone can suggest me a way of speeding things up, I'd really appreciate
it.

Kind Regards,
