What is the difference between finding the local maxima/minima and absolute maxima/minima of a differential equation?

The maximum and minimum of a function, are the largest and smallest value that the function takes at a point either within a given neighborhood or on the function domain.
A function f has a local minimum at x=a if near r
Similarly, a function f has a local maximum at x=a if near a.
A function f has a global minimum at x=a if all over the domain.
Similarly, a function f has a global maximum at x=a if all over the domain.
Let us observe the following figure.
