This is the Weierstrass Extreme Value Theorem. endobj Extreme Value Theorem If is continuous on the closed interval , then has both an absolute maximum and an absolute minimum on the interval. For the extreme value theorem to apply, the function must be continuous over a closed, bounded interval. 864.58 849.54 1162.04 849.54 849.54 687.5 312.5 581.02 312.5 562.5 312.5 312.5 546.88 Typically, it is proved in a course on real analysis. The extreme value theorem is used to prove Rolle's theorem. The Extreme Value Theorem. Thus, before we set off to find an absolute extremum on some interval, make sure that the function is continuous on that interval, otherwise we may be hunting for something that does not exist. 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 500] /BaseFont /PJRARN+CMMI10 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 593.75 459.49 443.75 437.5 625 593.75 812.5 593.75 593.75 500 562.5 1125 562.5 562.5 /StemV 80 /Descent -250 /StemV 80 860.12 767.86 737.11 883.93 843.26 412.7 583.34 874.01 706.35 1027.78 843.26 876.99 Therefore by the definition of limits we have that ∀ M ∃ K s.t.

If a function $f$ is continuous on $[a,b]$, then it attains its maximum and minimum values on $[a,b]$. We will ﬁrst show that \(f\) attains its maximum. State where those values occur. Theorem \(\PageIndex{2}\): Extreme Value Theorem (EVT) Suppose \(f\) is continuous on \([a,b]\). If f(x) has an extremum on an open interval (a,b), then the extremum occurs at a critical point. Bolzano's proof consisted of showing that a continuous function on a closed interval was bounded, and then showing that the function attained a maximum and a minimum value.
