Subject: how to find local minima of a function with no obvious function form? From: Kun Date: 1 Jul, 2011 02:58:10 Message: 1 of 9 
I have a local minimization problem for a function which has no obvious function form. I have read the methods in Mathwork. They all need some kind of function form. Does any one know some tool in Matlab to do that?

I point out that this is from a very complicated modeling problem. The function with multiple independent variables for optimization can never be obtained. It is also not in an implicit function form.
