## Some Optimization Problems in Two and Three DimensionsWei-Chi Yangwyang@radford.eduRadford University U.S.A.
## Abstract We will look at a problem that is originated from
a math competition and analyze how we might solve the problem without
using calculus approach. Second, we will investigate given two differentiable
curves in two dimensions and given any point on the curve 1, how
do we find the point on the curve 2 so that the distance between
these two points is the shortest. Finally, we will see how we extend
this result to the one in three dimensions. |
