In calculus, stationary points, also known as critical points or turning points, are points on the graph of a function where the derivative is equal to zero or undefined. Stationary points are important in calculus because they often correspond to locations where a function has local maximum or minimum values. They are used in finding the optimal points, inflection points, or points of interest in various applications, such as optimization problems, physics, economics, and engineering. View Solution Guide
