Bivariate (two variable) quadratic function(x minimum/maximum)


A bivariate (two variable) quadratic function is a second-degree polynomial which describes a quadratic surface and has the form: f(x,y)=Ax^2 + By^2 + Cx + Dy + Exy + F
If 4AB-E^2>0 the function has a minimum if A>0, and a maximum if A<0
