    It is just a surface in a 3 dimensional space.

    I've seen a method to solve problems like this easily, but I can't remember it right now. I'll try and look it up later to try and find more information.

    So I just found out min(f)=-1 so as I told in above that is a surface in a space.

    hi @Ishaan94 Using Completing the Square \[x^4+y^4+z^4-4xyz+1=0\\x^4-2x^2y^2+y^4+2x^2y^2+z^4+2z^2-2z^2-4xyz+1=0\\x^4-2x^2y^2+y^4+2(x^2y^2-2xyz+z^2)+z^4-2z^2+1=0\\(x^2-y^2)^2+2(xy-z)^2+(z^2-1)^2=0\] so \[x^2-y^2=xy-z=z^2-1=0\]

    only triples that satisfies the equation \[(x,y,z)=(1,1,1),(−1,−1,1),(1,−1,−1),(−1,1,−1)\]
