It has the following tag-excerpt:
Questions related to maximizing or minimizing a expression or a function.
and the tag-wiki:
Related to applications of derivatives
max./min. of cost, a function expression etc.
(BTW it is nice that the creator of tag also created the tag-wiki. I think that people who create tags should do this, but not many of them do so.)
From my experience, such questions have been so far usually tagged as optimization; this tag has the following tag-excerpt at this moment:
Optimization is the process of choosing the "best" value among possible values. They are often formulated as questions on the minimization/maximization of functions, with or without constraints.
Based on the tag-excerpt this tag seems very suitable for this kind of questions. But the name max-min is also good, because if someone asks about maximizing or minimizing a function and looks for an appropriate tag, they will probably start typing something containing max or min.
I would like to ask the following
Are there some different tags apart from optimization which should be used for questions about finding extrema of functions?
Are there other names who should be useful as synonyms for max-min or for optimization; which would help the users in choice of correct tags? (E.g. the user might be tempted to look for extrema tag, when he asks question like this.)
