Page1/1            Inflection points 2008-01-25 From Armando:Hi, Im trying to write a program that takes an equation ( f(x) = 0 ) and returns a list of the inflexion points in a given interval. there must be (I think) a mathematical method or algorithm to do this, probably involving the (second) derivate of the function. However I have not found such a method yet. Any help on this will be much appreciated.Answered by Stephen La Rocque and Harley Weston.     Local maxima, minima and inflection points 2007-11-13 From Russell:let f(x) = x^3 - 3a^2^ x +2a^4 with a parameter a > 1. Find the coordinates of local minimum and local maximum Find the coordinates of the inflection pointsAnswered by Harley Weston.     Find the point of inflexion for the curve y = e^x/(x^2-1) 2006-03-31 From Sam:Hi, i am trying to find the point of inflexion for the curve y = ex/(x2-1) and i got a really complex expression for y". I can't seem to solve x4-4x3+4x2+4x+3=0 so does that mean there is no point of inflexion?Answered by Penny Nom.
