Thanks for your response. The maximum values I'm getting is log(0.063). I guess there might be some approximations taken in my case. Thanks again for the help. However, the problem is that I need to plot the function value at each iteration and need to show how this function attains the shape of a concave function. This is possible, I guess, only if we iterate it and that can be done only through optimtool or using any iterative method. Correct me , if I'm wrong. Secondly, I'm given this constraint of using optimization tool which brings me back again to my question. The problem is not with regard to solving the question, my problem is with regard to certain functionality of optim user interface which is not working. So I would appreciate if someone could address my problem!
