Given any arbitrary hyper-ellipsoid defined by an orthonormal basis, center and extents along each axis, calculate the global maximum of the curve bounded by any arbitrary vector V, and the perpendicular plane P to V, where both V and P intersect the each other and the hyper-ellipsoid.

    Do you know the standard equation of the ellipsoid? .. that will help.

    So I should implicitly differentiate the bounded curve of the equation of an ellipsoid to find the maximum? What about its arbitrary orientation?

    First you setup the ellipsoid from the conditions, then find critical points based on D=f_xx*f_yy-f_xy*f_yx, D>0 where f_xx>0. Then put each critical point, plus the end points into the original ellipsoid to the greatest value, which is the global maximum.
