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
