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 \(f\).
