On an application of a computer for teaching mathematical analysis: Local extrema of functions of two variables. (Czech) Zbl 0879.00005

The author presents a very brief information about the project CALC (Calculus As a Laboratory Course) which has been tested at universities in the USA, and about three CAM systems (Computer Aided Mathematics), namely MAPLE V, Mathematica and Derive. He added six examples on searching local extrema of functions of two variables to illustrate the strength as well as some weakness of the CAM systems.
