Subject: More Constrained Min, non-linear

Dear MathGroup,<wolfrum@cs.uni-bonn.de> asked the question below, andseveral fine answers have been posted.I have a related question.... What if the constraint:        abs(x+y) = 1is replaced by a new constaint:        abs(x+y) <= 1How can one solve a problem like this in Mma?? Thank you for your helpDave======================================>>Hi,>>I'm not yet quite familiar with all Mathematica features>(who is?) and I'm looking for a solution of a rather>simple problem. I can easily solve it by hand but I>wanna know how to do this with Mathematica. Here it is:>>Where is f(x,y)=x^2+y^2 minimal, if x and y are>constrained to abs(x+y)=1 ?>>Is it possible to solve this without programming?>>Please answer via email, thanks in advance,>Stefan.>*******************************David E.
