1 Lecture X Finding the Minimum Using Newton’s Method I. Finding the Univariate Minimum (Algorithm1.ma) A. A Sufficiently Complex Function 1. It is obvious that finding the minimum of a simple univariate quadratic function is trivial given the rules we discussed in the preceding section. For example Ux x x () =− + 54 2 2 has a minimum determined by its first derivative x x x = = 10 4 0 2 5 . In addition, straightforward transformations such as e xx 2 2 −+ offer little additional complexity [] x x x = = 10 4 0 2 5 . 2. One possibility is the rational function fx x = + 2 10 2 . f(x) 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 - 5 - 4 - 3- 2 - 101234567891 01 11 21 3 However, these functions typically have bizarre discontinuities. For example, plotting the above function over a broader range indicates that
