Is it possible to find an upper bound and a lower bound for $(f(\xi)-f(\tilde{\xi}))^T(\frac{\partial f}{\partial \xi}(\bar{\xi}))(\xi-\tilde{\xi})$?

For a system engineering problem I have to solve the problem below, but since I am not a mathematician, I am not sure if I have enough knowlegde to solve it. Problem definition: Let $f(\xi) \in \...

The collection of mean value abscissas in the Mean value theorem

The integral mean value theorem for continuous f on [0,b] and finite positive continuous measure $\mu$ we have $$\frac{1}{\mu[a,b]}\int_{a}^{b}f(x)d\mu(x)=f(c)(*)$$ for at least one $c\in [a,b]$. We ...

A discrete-to-continuous approach to the Dirichlet principle?

Dirichlet principle: Let $\Omega \subset R^n$ be a compact set with $C^1$ boundary. Then, there exists a unique solution $f$ satisfying $\Delta f = 0$ in $\Omega$ and $f=g$ on $\partial \Omega$. We ...

Mean value theorem in terms of Wirtinger calculus?

The mean value theorem for vector-valued function in the real domain $f: \mathcal{R}^n \rightarrow \mathcal{R}^d$ can be expressed as \begin{equation} f(x)-f(y)=\int_{0}^{1}\nabla f(x(\tau))d \tau \...

Bull's-eye Riemann sum

Let $f:[a,b] \to \mathbb{R}^2$ be a continuous curve on the plane. Question: Are there numbers $a \leq x \leq c \leq y \le b$ such that $$(c-a)f(x)+(b-c)f(y) = \int_a^b f(t) \, dt \ ?$$ In other ...
