Solution: 2015-14 Local and absolute maximum

Find all positive integers \(n\) such that the following statement holds:

Let \(f:\mathbb{R}^n\to \mathbb {R}\) be a differentiable function that has a unique critical point \(c\). If \(f\) has a local maximum at \(c\), then \(f(c)\) is an absolute maximum of \(f\).

Solution: 2015-13 Minimum

Find the minimum value of
\[
\int_{\mathbb{R}} f(x) \log f(x) dx
\]
among functions \(f: \mathbb{R} \rightarrow \mathbb{R}^+ \cup \{ 0 \}\) that satisfy the condition
\[
\int_{\mathbb{R}} f(x) dx = \int_{\mathbb{R}} x^2 f(x) dx = 1.
\]
