Cf. Maxima and minima

We search for a critical point in the interval [14.13,14.14], that is x where f'(x) = 0.

Quote:Should it get the minimum, at x = 14.13 ?

The function is somewhat pathological in that it's close to 0 most of the time and only 1 at the maximum which is where $$\sin(x)=1$$.
That means $$x=\frac{\pi}{2}+k\cdot2\pi$$ for $$k\in\mathbb{Z}$$.

It's not defined (or then takes complex values) where $$\sin(x)<0$$.
Thus the minimal value is 0 when $$x=k\cdot\pi$$ for $$k\in\mathbb{Z}$$.

So the minimal values in that section are $$(4\pi, 0)$$ and $$(5\pi, 0)$$ and the maximal value is $$(\frac{9}{2}\pi, 1)$$.

The flatness of the function makes it hard to numerically find the stationary points.

Since I used Free42 instead of the HP-42S it could very well be that the results don't agree.
