Hi everyone, I am very new to Mathematica. I wish to prepare a figure and a movie where the maximum of the plot is labelled on the figure. I am using Manipulate to animate a function as shown below: jinc[x_] := BesselJ[1, 2 \[Pi] x]/(2 \[Pi] x); f[x_, \[CapitalDelta]_] := 4 Abs[jinc[x + \[CapitalDelta]] - jinc[x - \[CapitalDelta]]]^2; Manipulate[ Plot[f[x, \[CapitalDelta]], {x, -1.22, 1.22}, PlotRange -> {{-0.5, 0.5}, {0, 1.5}}], {\[CapitalDelta], 0.125, 0.5}] I find the maximum for different values of Delta using: Manipulate[ NMaximize[f[x, \[CapitalDelta]], x], {\[CapitalDelta], 0.125, 0.5}] Can someone please help with a code that can print the result returned by NMaximize on (say) top-left of the Plot generated by the first Manipulate above? The plot will look neat if I can place a marker at the X-position of maximum. Also, I wish to have a Motion-JPEG compressed quicktime mov file exported from this manipulate. How can that be achieved? thanks in advance for any help.
