Lagrange multipliers for equality constraints.

e are considering the following problem.

MATH (Minimization with equality constraints)
where the $f$ and $h_{i}$ are smooth functions MATH .


(Existence of Lagrange multipliers for equality constraints). Let $x^{\ast}$ be a local minimum of the problem ( Minimization with equality constraints ) and MATH then there are scalars MATH such that MATH


The condition MATH implies MATH where the $n\times m$ matrix $A$ consists of the columns MATH MATH Hence, MATH Equivalently, MATH Therefore, MATH We next show that MATH Indeed, we already established that MATH is a subspace, hence, MATH . Therefore, if MATH then MATH . But MATH and we proved already that MATH

Therefore, MATH According to the proposition ( Minimum of a smooth function ), MATH hence, MATH and the conclusion of the proposition follows.

The condition MATH states that the MATH consists of directions tangent to the level surfaces of $h_{i}$ crossing the $x^{\ast}$ . For example, MATH
