Do problem 14.7 on page 385 in the text. 2. Using the function from problem 14.7, and the starting point of (0, 0), perform one iteration of Newton’s method and compute the function value. 3. Using the function fminsearch from Matlab, Fnd the maximum of the function from 14.7. Be sure to negate the function when you deFne the M-Fle since

Unformatted text preview: fminsearch Fnds minima. To deFne the function choose ile/New and type the function in as in the examples in the book on pages 405409, then save the Fle with the default name. Compare the function value at the optimum to the function values from the Frst iterations of steepest ascent and Newtons method. 4. Do problems 17.4, 17.7, and 17.17 on pages 485486 in the text. You may use Excel or Matlab instead of hand computation....
